"The only objection I have heard to this movie, that was halfway objective, was that the attitude of the kids and language could be improved. Now I understand that judgement, but either you need to get eye surgery or or be realistic about your outlook. When I first saw this movie when it was released I fell in love with it. I'm no kid either, in fact I'm now 52. This movie is realistic and has some great acting and comedy. So if you're concerned about how it will affect kids, why don't you sit down and watch it with them. Everyone should have a laugh.
It is sad to me that funny family movies like this have not come out on DVD when there is so much junk that has come out on DVD. I don't know who is keeping this from coming out on DVD but I for one will buy it when it does. I went ahead and ordered this on VHS because there is no indication that it will be on DVD anytime soon."
Top notch movie for all NASCAR fans.

"If you are looking for a top-notch, action filled movie about NASCAR, this ain't it! Kenny Rogers stars as Brewster Baker, a onetime Grand National racing star who is on the come back trail. While Kenny Rogers is not the most talented actor, he does exuberate loads of charm in saving his newly acquired "Six Pack" of orphans from a corrupt sheriff, aptly played by Barry Corbin. Dianne Lane and Anthony Michael Hall give great early career performances in this delightful movie. To be fair, Robby Still's character Swifty does swear A LOT! But he is admonished by Brewster for his behavior. Overall a fun movie with a little racing and a great show song, "Love Will Turn You Around" from Kenny Rogers.
This movie is a bit dated but in that respect, it depicts the now mega sport in its earlier days of small dirt tracks and honestly shows where many of todays drivers get their start. Check out the scenes from Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Classic in my eyes

"I agree with most other reviews saying that this movie is good but not great. But on the other hand I too grew up watching this movie and for some reason longed to be a race car driver, going from town to town. This movie is on my list of "need to gets" but for gods sake when are they going to release on DVD in widescreen???"
