In Wetonkawa, Oklahoma, they have one claim to fame and his name is Harley Henson, a.k.a., "The Wetonkawa Flash" - the greatest football player in state history. If this man hadn't suffered his debilitating knee injury, well sir, there'd be statues of him in the Football Hall of Fame. Twenty years later, the shine is wearing off Wetonkawa's golden boy. His only son won't speak to him, his wife wants a divorce so she can marry his brother and his state rushing record, the one thing he always had, is about to be broken. But thanks to an overzealous preacher, an attempted assassination by the town dog catcher and a little divine intervention, the Wetonkawa Flash is about to become a legend once again. Written by
Funny film from the writer of Letterman and other cool shows. What happened? Why is this gem not seeing the light of day?? Mark Boone Jr is funny and the film is wry and sweet. Story is about a small town football hero who is about to have his record broken and he becomes despondent. Meanwhile his son is a band geek and gay, his wife is cheating on him with his jerk of a brother and the local priest wants to save him....all the right fixings for a funny cocktail. Plus his two best friends are like the barflys on Cheers. If you get a chance try to see this film before it becomes like the Oklahoma dust bowl... and disappears.
