    Has anyone seen "SIX PACK" starring Diane Lane and Kenny Rogers (!?) Is it any good? How is the DVD? Any reviews?

    The transfer is not stunning due to the age of the film. The story is universal enough that it still holds up well. For NASCAR fans there are a couple of nostalgic moments. The only complaint I have is a bad edit where a line is abruptly truncated. It goes "Does a bear sh" and cuts away mid sentence.

    Whoa... I saw this on The Z Channel several times back in the early 80's. I think I might just have to check it out.

    I used to see this all the time as well. Pop's would always bring it home, mainly because of Kenny Rogers.

    So is the DVD edited then? I seem to recall a bit of cursing in this.

    It appears that just the one line is chopped of. The rest of the cursing appears to all be there, but I can't guarantee it.

    It's not cut at all. It's the full version with the swearing little kids. That line has always been slightly "clipped" to mask the profanity. I thought the transfer was excellent considering the films age and the sound was mono but smooth and involving. It even has Wilma Deering from Buck Rogers in it (and she looks mighty fine!)[​IMG] and Diane Lane (what a babe!)[​IMG]

    Lucky ol' Kenny![​IMG]

    Any trailer?

    I miss seeing this film since the days of WHT (the east coast Z Channel practically)

    Where's Brewster Baker?
    He had to shake the dew off
    What?
    He had to take a p--s!!

    And that's the story!!!

    Check for Chuck Woolery in a cameo as one of the racing commentators

    I liked the chubby kid... "That ain't no lie!"

    And along with DIANE LANE and KENNY ROGERS...

    ...the funny kid from WEIRD SCIENCE and BREAKFAST CLUB is in it also!

    I went to elemetary school and High school [breifly] with this kid http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0830234/ . He was a relative [nephew?] of Kenny Rogers. It was a big deal to us kids in '82. [​IMG]

    It is so amusing how you manage to keep bumping this thread to the top Martin.

    Does Diane Lane have a restraining order on you yet?[​IMG]

    That song kicks ass. Well, maybe "kicks ass" isn't the right term. It's quite enjoyable, however.
