Six Pack (1982)


sp“[as Brewster drives off] You no good, rotten, washed up, fork tongue, black hearted, double dealing, backstabbing, alci bum! We could’ve been great together.” – Swifty

Number of Times Seen – 5-10  (cable, 27 Jun 2013)

Brief Synopsis – A race car driver encounters a family of six orphaned kids who help him win races and also learns how to be a father.

My Take on it – As a kid, I watched this movie quite often on cable and really enjoyed it.  Watching it now, I see how mediocre the movie is and am somewhat unhappy that I burst the bubble from my treasured memories.

I was surprised to read that this was Kenny Rogers first movie.  Not that he’s an amazing actor, but passable.

This is the movie debut of Anthony Michael Hall who just two years later went on to star in Sixteen Candles (1984) followed by The Breakfast Club (1985).

This was also one of the first movies for Diane Lane.  It was very interesting to see actors from the present in movies where they were just child actors and see how much they have grown since.

The “baddie” in this movie was Terry Kiser, who would later become famous as a dead guy; Bernie in Weekend at Bernie’s (1989)

Bottom Line – Enjoyed it more as a kid, appreciated seeing actors in a movie as kids.

Rating – BAFTA worthy
