Grand Champion

A boy trying to do the right thing for his family loses his closest companion and decides to do something about it in this comedy-drama for the whole family that was shot on location in Texas. Buddy (Jacob Fisher) is a young boy being raised by his single mother Hallie (Joey Lauren Adams) on a small ranch in the Lone Star state. Buddy has been taking care of a young steer he calls Hokey Pokey, and while at first the animal is more of a pet than anything else, with hard work and encouragement Buddy is able to groom Hokey Pokey into a prize-winning steer who wins the Grand Champion award at a major rodeo livestock show. Hokey Pokey is purchased for 775,000 dollars at a livestock auction, which will allow Buddy and his sister to attend college and make life at home a lot easier for his mother. But when Buddy is told that Hokey Pokey's new owner plans to turn the steer into an especially large order of barbecue, he decides he can't let his four-hoofed buddy die, and with the help of his friends he hatches a scheme to kidnap the steer. Grand Champion features cameo appearances from country music stars George Strait, Natalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks), and Robert Earl Keen, as well as several top rodeo riders.

This is a great little film for kids who love animals. Adults will enjoy watching the all-star cameos that pop up every so often. While the plot is somewhat predictable, the film looks beautiful - the Texas landscape is gorgeous - and the young actors are charming. Show this one to your youngsters without worry, and you'll probably like it too!

The story is charming, sweet and exciting! It is so refreshing to see a movie with decent morals and values. No bad words, no fights...just good clean fun! It gets more and more exciting as the storyline develops. Adults will really enjoy it along their children. We all rooted for the kids and hoped the bad guys would get their just rewards! A real family movie! My 11 year old son and I watched this movie and loved it! He rated it one of the top 3 in his book of favorites! Highly recommend it for everyone!
