A vintage movie for rednecks.
9 May 2005 | by lightninboySee all my reviews

This TV movie had a lot going for it to appeal to rural American viewers of the 1970s. Johnny and June Carter Cash and the whole state of Texas. Johnny plays Thaddeus Rose, and Bo Hopkins plays Eddie. They are two ranching "piddlers" who will never make it big. T.R. drives a 1959 or 1960 Ford pickup. Eddie drives an El Camino with a stock rack. He takes up chasing a woman named Carlotta. A real estate dealer talks T.R. into trading his ranch for a citrus grove in the Rio Grande Valley. He moves there and finds the house a mess. He has a good Spanish-speaking man working for him, though. His citrus crop gets frozen, and he goes back to ranch country a loser. He and Eddie get into trouble for throwing a tomato at the Sheriff or something. T.R. gets back together with his ex- or separated wife Crystal, though.
