Plot Summary
After incurring a huge debt with a crime lord, con man Eddie Sullivan (Mark Feuerstein) needs some quick cash. Upon hearing that a local orphanage also desperately needs funds, Eddie convinces the head nun that one of the residents, a gentle giant named Walter (Paul "The Giant" Wight), can win the money as a traveling fighter. The nun gives Eddie and Walter one week, and as they journey across the South, Eddie wonders if he can really go through with his plan to keep all the money for himself.

  • A 2010 movie that could have been made in 1940. show more

  • Director Michael W. Watkins, whose decades of TV credits go back to "Quantum Leap," manages one clever visual gag - a bus wreck, observed from the far side of a cornfield. We hear a crunch, see a telephone pole wobble and a little puff of smoke. Then Watkins blows the moment with a fiery overkill. show more

  • This lame comedy about a big doofus who enters the fight game manages to take every cliche in the book and render them even more cliched. show more
