Old man Amos, a hard-working grocery store truck driver, has just about had it with the Brown Family and their lazy and thieving ways. Amos has always had a beautiful yard wanted the Brown's land that they don't take care of. One day the Browns decide to move to the big city. Amos dream is finally about to come true. The conflict comes to a head when the Browns start stealing juicy watermelons from Amos truck in an attempt to win a $10,000.00 watermelon contest! This is a comedy and it is not intended to make fun of any race. Remember it's a move not a life story based on real people! I have read the comments and people lighten up. Did you really watch this movie? Have you ever seen Steve Martian in the "Jerk"? Can't people just have fun with the story that writer, director and actors are trying to tell with out a racial statement being made? Life is short laugh at the humor of life and do not be commended by it.
