Movie Info

Country music star Toby Keith writes and stars in this road movie comedy inspired by his chart-topping hit of the same name. Beer for My Horses opens to find small-town deputies and longtime buddies Rack (Keith) and Lonnie (Rodney Carrington) quietly enforcing the law in a small Southern town. Things are relatively quiet in their neck of the woods, so when a violent drug lord (Carlos Sanz) kidnaps Rack's girlfriend (Claire Forlani) in response to seeing his brother (Greg Serano) get arrested,

Even ticketbuyers with a hearty appetite for hayseed humor may be repulsed by the coarse cornpone tomfoolery of Beer for My Horses.

A hayseed hodgepodge of clichéd plotting, racist stereotyping, vulgar humor, cartoonish acting, clumsy drama and shameless product placement.

Good lord, even the poster tagline is repugnant - "Vigilante justice - it's a blast!"

Michael Salomon traffics in easy plot points like kidnapped damsels and land-grubbing farm barons (Barry Corbin), paired with casual sexism, copious booze and uncomfortable bigotry.

Like Middle Age Crazy and Ode to Billie Joe, Beer for My Horses belongs in that small but not exactly elite company of movies based on hit country songs.

Audience Reviews for Beer for My Horses

I honestly had no idea what to think about this before I watched it. I honestly don't even know what got my attention about it but boy am I happy I I watched it. Toby Keith is a better actor than he is singer...then again his music isn't so bad but I'm not saying it >_>

You have Toby as a deputy sheriff with a comedy duo of Rodney Carrington and Ted Nugent as his back up. I tell you what I love Rodney in everything I see him do ever since the days of Bob and Tom. His humor is so great in this movie. It's an action comedy that reminds me of a buddy cop movie you'd see in the 80's. This movie was watching just for the bathroom scene with Rodney. So great. You got Ted who never says anything and plays the guy with all the guns and loves his job and shooting at people. You got dysfunctional stuff you hear about in country songs going on for humor and a story that doesn't take itself to serious. Definitely worth a couple of watches just to see the comedy hi jinx that ensues.
