A delight
19 August 2002 | by storymomSee all my reviews

The movie is on a par (no pun intended) with Waking Ned Devine. It is another wonderful story of a small community coming together to beat the system...this time represented by the interests of an international corporation, in kahoots with the local established (old boy) real estate interests. Set in west Texas, it is the story of a family of four grown siblings living in a trailor on desert land that belongs to that outside corporation. However, the dead father has been channeling through the eldest brother and tells him of his dream to have a golf course built right on that desert land. The bro.s and their sister with the help of the local sheriff and eventually the full town, Pull it off! I won't tell any of the adventures or side lines....but it is full of them...Great comedy. Wonderful sound track and excellent acting all around! A real plus to the culture! Let us hope it gets some serious distribution.
