Critic Reviews for Beer for My Horses

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

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

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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!"

Full Review… | August 9, 2010

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

(** 1/2): [img][/img] Funnier that what I was expecting, but not funny enough to recommend it.


Wrong in so many ways. Probably one of the worst movies ever made. I actually used to be a fan of Toby before this. Afterwards, I can't stand to see him or hear his name. This film is offensive, racist, and very unfunny. I'm glad that Willie was only in it for one small scene. Even he has higher standards than this. Toby has officially proven how hardcore American he is. He portrays everyone's outside the U.S.A. as an over the top stereotype. Even blacks aren't safe from racism in this movie. It's like the directors of Disaster movie and Meet the Spartans decided to go country and yes IT'S THAT FUCKING BAD! Beware at all costs. And no Toby Keith, this isn't a good movie. It's as horrible as I've learned you are. For those of you who didn't know, Toby actually wrote half the script for this. Sure you can blame it all on the other guy, accept Toby would have worked with him and brainstorm and APPROVE mind you. Mathew Buck, trash this movie a new one on BMB, let's not let this atrocity of a movie go unpunished. Let's raise up our glasses against evil forces, by trashing this bad movie 'Beer for my Horses' My number one most hated movie of all time

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.
