Reader review by Michael Colander.  A corrupt southern sheriff learns that messing with a Sergeant Major who owns his own Sherman tank is a really stupid idea.

After looking at the pictures I realized that Sarah, the prostitute, was played by Jenilee Harrison. Her one claim to fame is that she replaced Suzanne Somers on Three's Company. I think her character's name was Cindy Snow. I think she was supposed to be the cousin or niece of Suzanne Somers' character.

I love this movie, well and truly. I had the pleasure of seeing it with a big, appreciative audience down in Alabama.

Seriously this is one of the most quotable movies ever made. Examples --

"Well, it's very hard to shoot yourself while cleaning it."
"I don't wanna dance the funky monkey or whatever they're doing."
"Sergeant, that's the best f**king peach cobbler I've ever tasted."
"Am I going to tell them that their governor is a kind and caring man, or am I going to tell them that he's an a**hole?"
"What are you doing?" "Stealin'."

A lot of fun. A LOT of fun.

I'm glad to see all the love for this movie. James Garner has always been one of my favorite actors, and there is no better movie than seeing two b.a.s--badasses--get it on.

Tanks...for the memories...

Nice flick, and the best pat it, they know what tank fans like. Cannons and car crushing!
Best use of a Sherman M4 since KELLYS HEROS.

I remember seeing this as a kid, and laughing so hard during the "tug of war" scene. You didn't really do it's insanity complete justice, I must say. First of all, a truck with a huge, foot thick steel cable pulls up. My dad at this point started flipping out, seeing where they were going with this. It gets worse: a biker sticks one end of the huge, hundred pound cable under his arm (!) and drives onto a makeshift ramp (!!) and flies a hundred feet through the air to the tank (!!!) My dad was totally atomic: "how the hell did they cut that cable? it's a foot thick, and I didn't see them cut it with anything!"

When four of the redneck people somehow outpull every human being in the state of Missouri, the frusturated good people hook the cable up to a bulldozer (my dad: "where the hell did the bulldozer come from? How the hell did they cut the other end of the cable?") and use that to help them pull. Hilariously, the bulldozer still BARELY outpulls the evil rednecks, who must have used their "evil redneck magic" to increase their strength. I haven't seen this movie in probably 10-15 years, at the very least, and this scene is still vivid in my memory.

I would love to see James Garner do that today.  The government would not take to kindly to a guy blowing stuff up with a tank.

Cool looking Sherman.
