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

Well Pardon Me Boy.
12 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Totally incoherent and really down-right dumb mess follows a cast of characters on a train of all things. The title, based on the very popular song that came about in the 1940s, is the only real connection for the episodic situations. As bad as this is it may still win a few over with its stupidity. Joe Namath (former New York Jets quarterback) makes the largest impression in a whacked cast that includes Barbara Eden ("I Dream of Jeannie" fame) and the usually dependable George Kennedy. With all the shortcomings (they are way too numerous to go into) I still ended up having a fair time on the ride. Not near enough for a recommendation of course, but I have seen much worse in my time. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
