"CONCRETE COWBOYS is a very funny movie set in 1970's Nashville starring Tom Selleck and Jerry Reed(Country Music Artist and Co-star of Smokey and the Bandit Movies). Selleck and Reed are a couple of con-artist cowboys from Montana who end up in Nashville in the adventure of their lives.The movie starts with Selleck and Reed playing a game of poker at a truck stop, where Reed gets them beat up and chased out of town. They hop a freight-train where they wind up in Nashville, Tennessee. Coincidentally, Reed has a friend that lives in Nashville that he calls to find a place to stay. The guy that Reed calls happens to be going out of town and lets them stay at his apartment and drive his corvette, which is very convenient for these two traveling hobos. Selleck and Reed come to find out that this guy is a private detective and they take a case to find a missing girl. Along the way they meet several country music stars such as Roy Acuff and Ray Stevens. I won't give away the suprise ending or any of the twists that befall these two lovable losers, but you won't be dissapointed.Tom Selleck and Jerry Reed are great as cowboy buddies taking a murder case while posing as private detectives. Jerry Reed is the conniving slick one of the pair while Tom Selleck is the somewhat dumb one, but he does carry a set of encyclopedias with him throughout the entire movie so he can "get himself some learnin". This is a great movie for anyone that likes country music, since it is full of songs by Jerry Reed, live performances by Ray Stevens, and other country songs of the late 70's. Also, this movie is a great look at all the Nashville landmarks like the Opryland Hotel, Parthenon, and Country Music Hall of Fame. I first saw this movie at about 1:00 in the morning on TBS a few years ago, and having lived in the Nashville area all my life it was funny to see the city 25 years ago. Plus it is only $5.00 so what's really stopping you from buying it...trust me you'll like it even if its just for the cheesiness."
Concrete cowbodys is rock solid fun.

"made for tv movie 1979 is a classic. Jerry Reed and Tom Selleck play two cowboys hitch a train into Nashville and find themselves playing detectives when a woman offers them money to find her sister only to discover they've been used by a friend. This movie moves right along with drama and comedy. Reed n Selleck made a great duo and this should've been a hit tv series. much bettr than his other show."
Pretty good movie

"This was a pretty good comedy/action movie. Tom Selleck is a great actor overall. Its a "older movie", but was still entertaning. Well worth the money."
Not really worth it........

"Very campy but a treat seeing Jerry Reed and Tom Selleck together. Crazy stuff. Not worth paying full price though."

"This movie has lots of big stars, but I barely managed to stay awake to finish it. Tom Selleck makes a great cowboy, and Morgan Fairchild was good. But the movie was boring - I had the plot figured out halfway through and I'm normally not good at guessing - it was that obvious. Sure glad I purchased a used copy so I got it for cheap. I'll give it to Goodwill ... you couldn't make me watch this movie twice."
