Some possible good storyline's could have came out of this loser film...
29 April 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 4/29/2001 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Jerry Reed): Some possible good storyline's could have came out of this loser film, but they're not explored. Reed's character's rehabilitation from heroine and alcohol and a controlling manager by his brother are given up for a stupid revenge plot done against the manager(badly played by Barry Corbin.) Reed, known best for Bert Reynolds Smokey sidekick in the "Smokey and the Bandit" movies, seems to borrow from some of those movies(at least the bad parts) in this directorial attempt. The music has some worth and Reed's singing sounds better than anything I've ever heard him do before(which shows me that this is the part of the business he should have stayed in), but as a moviemaker he is extremely lacking. Bo Hopkins does a good job as his brother, but other characters are just ridiculous(aka. Arte Johnson as the detective that finds Reed, and Corbin's bumbling assistant). I never realized how unfunny Arte is without his Nazi headgear. Hopefully he's made some money in other more deserving parts. This is another one of those(I'm doing everything and failing at it miserably films), this time it happened to be Jerry Reed.
