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>

Good clean country humor
16 August 2008 | by thrdthymeluckySee all my reviews

One of the comments made by a user claims it's nothing like cannonball run and I don't know what movies you've been watching but maybe since you've had kids you've lost your sense of humor.

This movie is good. Clean fun humor that is made up not only by the film and it's script but by the characters themselves and the individuality each actor puts forth. Can anyone actually believe they put Ted in an an entire movie and that the man who is so opinionated doesn't get a single word in edge wise. This movie adds a classic look at simple humor that still has a family side to it.

I've seen most of the music artists in concert and Carrington's stage acts (which are funny but definitely adult) that have been in this film and in my perspective they add country charm and class.

Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion and this one is mine.
