Trivia:
The meaning and relevance of this movie's "Six Pack" title is that it is a play on words of its usual meaning which is the way beer and other drinks and beverages are packaged which is in half-a-dozen packages of cans or bottles.. There are six orphaned youngsters in this movie who befriend stock-car racer Kenny Rogers, hence the term "Six Pack". It is notable that Kenny Rogers's character's name is Brewster Baker and his shortened nickname is Brew, a reference to beer.See more »

Entertaining for the kids, even today., 11 October 2008
Author: moviedude1 from Minneapolis, MN, USA

A former stock car driver attempts to make a comeback with six orphans hanging on his coat tails. Kenny Rogers gets a taste of parenting on the road as he gets adopted by six brothers and sisters without any direction in their lives, except a crooked sheriff who wants to take advantage of their unusual skill.

As an actor, Kenny Rogers holds his own, and his interaction with the kids was good. Along with the growing relationship between him and the children is a young lady, played by Erin Gray, who has designs of her own on Rogers, but can't seem to get a commitment out of him.

Another of the main characters is the only daughter, played by Diane Lane, who has become an accomplished actor on her own. This film came out just after I finished high school and she was, virtually, an unknown (but we all know how that's changed).

As my one line summary states, this film is entertaining for the kids, and parents will even be able to tolerate watching it with their children (especially those who are stock car enthusiasts). 6 out of 10.
