Storyline

Unscrupulous football team owner George Kennedy will get $1 million tax-free if he lives up to the terms of his recently deceased father-in-law's will. He has to restore the old man's favorite train, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, and make a 24-hour run from Chattanooga to New York. Kennedy sees this as his chance to get free from his wife and get some publicity for his team. Kennedy's mistress (Barbara Eden), the team coach (Joe Namath), cheerleaders, players press, estranged wife, daughter, potential son-in-law and his father (who is also Kennedy's business rival), are all on board for the hilarious trip. Written by Keith G. Cromer

Great, Hilarious Movie For Fun loving Viewers, Great Cast
17 June 2002 | by (Milwaukee,Wis.) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed every minute of this. George Kennedy as Bert, a potential inheritor of his father's fortune was great. Barbara Eden as his fluzzy girl friend Maggie Jones was absolutely perfect and her handling of Bert, her overbearing, possessive, bumbling boyfriend was very believable Joe Namath, the football great, provided a love interest. The trip on an old train with the objective of making a required schedule and the intervening wide variety of shenanegans make this a really fun movie. Of course a little bathroom humor which is thrown in, might turn off a few straight laced people, but I found it funny because it was far from obscene. Overall, I found the acting of Barbara Eden, George Kennedy and Joe Namath excellent and hard to top.
