Overview

When seed and sod entrepreneur Daltry Calhoun's Johnny Knoxville abandoned ex-girlfriend shows up on his doorstep with the daughter he never knew he had, the reformed ladies' man finds out that you can never truly escape your past -- even when it seems you may have no future. Calhoun is a local celebrity and self-made entrepreneur who made a name for himself by selling locally produced turf that blankets many of the nation's most exclusive golf courses, and his quirky television spots have won the hearts of television viewers across Ducktown, TN. When Daltry's ex-girlfriend May Elizabeth Banks arrives unannounced with talented teenage daughter June Sophie Traub in tow, she confides that her terminal illness has forced her to seek him out in hopes that he can care for their daughter after she is gone. Despite the early success of Daltry's business and the popularity of his kitschy commercials, things have been looking rather grim lately and Daltry has begun liquidating his assets in hopes of keeping his head above water. Though smitten shopkeeper Flora Juliette Lewis has offered financial help to Daltry, the kindly offers have fallen on deaf ears. Now, with the odds weighing heavily against him, Daltry vows to make up for lost time by doing right in the eyes of his family and community and caring for his daughter while getting his business back on track.

    Wild man show s some tenderness

    This great movie is seen throuth the eyes, or narrated by June "Sophie Traub" a 14 year old girl that has come to Duckland with her mother not really knowing why , but finding out later she was brought there to meet her father that she never knew Daltry Calhoun "Johnny Knoxville" a sod growing tycoon. All I can say beyond this is that this movie is acted out supremely by Knoxville, like I have never seen. He actually shows tenderness in this movie. There are turns in this movie, and a sad, heartwarming end including Juliette Lewis as Flora, Johnnies potential love interest.The real star is Sophie Traub, who plays June his 14 year old newly found daughter growing up fast that is starting to face adulthood. Its definately a must see.
