Storyline

Paradise Lake, near Kissimmee, Florida, is hosting a Professional Bass Association contest. Local bait-shop owner and former amateur champ, Bill Dugan, is in deep trouble: the bank wants $15,000 for the shop's mortgage, he doesn't tell his wife who's angry when she finds out, and his wealthy blow-hard father-in-law wants Bill to work for him. The tournament favorite is Hot Rod Johnson, a crowd-pleaser and ESPN darling who'll do anything to win. Bill's son Scott thinks Hot Rod is cool, Hot Rod opens a huge store close to Bill's, his ne'er-do-well pals are ready to desert him, and Bill may lose it all. His one hope is to enter the contest and win the prize. Time to fish or cut bait. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofy movie, goofy Bill
11 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off I will say that I like The Bill Engvall Show, and I'm a fan of Billy Ray Cyrus, so all bias aside this was one silly movie. Goofy characters, goofy premise but all in all a decent family movie. Engvall is funny as a down on his luck southerner with a passion for fishing, Cyrus is everything Bill wants to be. The two of them (and supporting cast) are really funny with some stock characters thrown in there just to be sure we get the point. Good TV movie, great for fans who enjoy simple entertainment every so often, and good for those who enjoy down home Bill and Billy.

"Frankly my darn, i don't give a dear."
