Partly filmed in my hometown
19 July 2008 | by (Richmond, VA United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up in a little town called Lebanon, TN about 20 minutes (or 30 miles) east of Nashville. Part of this movie used the original "Cracker Barrel" restaurant in Lebanon as a set. For those not from the South, the Cracker Barrel is a country-cooking restaurant with a gift shop attached.

From what I remember (I was much younger in 1985), the restaurant, or part of it was emptied out and a set built. A semi-truck was rammed into the building.

My older brother and his friends would duck out of school to watch the filming. He came home one day excited and said he had met Barry Corbin, who signed a publicity photo. Apparently, Mr. Corbin was very nice and accommodating.

Sorry to be kind of lame here, but not much else happened in that little town! :)
