Beer For My HorsesIn theaters: September 8th, 2008 Copyright © 2008 Roadside Attractions
Beer For My Horses is a rough-ridin’, beer-swillin’, sheriff-dodgin’, trouble-chasin’, good ol’ boys comedy-adventure written by and co-starring superstar Toby Keith and popular comedian/recording artist Rodney Carrington. Inspired by Keith’s #1 hit song, “Beer For My Horses,” the fun-filled action-adventure careens onto the open road with two buddies – Rack (KEITH) and Lonnie (CARRINGTON) – who have quietly been pursuing justice as deputies in a small Southern town. But when Rack’s irresistible girlfriend (CLAIRE FORLANI) is kidnapped by a particularly nasty drug lord (CARLOS SANZ) as revenge for the arrest of his brother Tito (GREG SERANO), the duo decide to defy their boss, Sheriff Landry (TOM SKERRIT), and chase them down … by any means necessary. Rounding up the town’s most off-beat lawman – Skunk Tarver (rock legend TED NUGENT), a defiantly silent man who chooses to use a bow n’ arrow instead of a gun – they take off on a rip-roaring road trip with all the makings of a rollicking comic joyride that’s not afraid to go over the top. Beer For My Horses is produced by Toby Keith and Donald Zuckerman and is executive produced by TK Kimbrell Jeff Yapp and Leslie Belzberg. The director of the movie is Michael Salomon. Keith, Carrington, Forlani, Skerrit, Nugent, and Serano approached the film in classic road comedy style – letting loose and adding a wild unpredictability to the film’s outrageous stunts. Rounding out the eclectic group of actors taking on the film’s uproariously eccentric characters are cameos by Barry Corbin (No Country For Old Men), country legend Willie Nelson and country music outlaw David Allan Coe.
