Storyline

Bill Racklin is a deputy sheriff in Greer County Oklahoma, the crystal meth capital of the region. His girlfriend leaves him because he's inattentive to her, but things look up when his high-school sweetheart, Annie Streets, returns home to care for her ailing mother. Annie's step-father, Buck Baker, is the local heartless rich guy, buying up farmland. On a stakeout, Rack and two other deputies arrest four men stealing fertilizer to make crystal meth; one of the four is the brother of a notorious Mexican drug dealer. The drug lord arranges Annie's kidnapping and holds her to ransom his brother. Rack and the deputies, prisoner in tow, head for Mexico to rescue her. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

B4My Horses has some very, very funny moments
10 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and Toby Keith's acting just gets better and better. I won't spoil some of the highlights, but if you go with it, you'll really enjoy.

It's definitely a 'buddy' road trip movie, that also catches the better side of good ol boy humor. Speaking from a very liberal northern perspective, it's the slow-talking set of idioms that sometimes makes us go 'huh?' but is done very well here.

There are some lines that are amateurish and kind of dopey, but not that many. He's doing better and better, and is fun to watch, not just because he's very good looking but he's a natural on the screen.

Go see it.
