Movie Info

A boy trying to do the right thing for his family loses his closest companion and decides to do something about it in this comedy-drama for the whole family that was shot on location in Texas. Buddy (Jacob Fisher) is a young boy being raised by his single mother Hallie (Joey Lauren Adams) on a small ranch in the Lone Star state. Buddy has been taking care of a young steer he calls Hokey Pokey, and while at first the animal is more of a pet than anything else, with hard work and encouragement

This low-key family drama is so hokey that its title character is named Hokey.

(Barry) Tubb fills the screen with wholesome, live-action family entertainment. That's a rarity these days.

The folks who made Grand Champion are best known for activities other than making movies. Grand Champion won't change that.

Audience Reviews for Grand Champion

Cute for a G movie. A little cheesy, but that's to be expected. I enjoyed it aside from the part where the boys were "on the run" with the steer - that was a little boring and long, but otherwise it wasn't bad.
