Movie Trailer - Toby Keith's 'Beer For My Horses'

I probably don't have to tell you that a movie based on a Toby Keith song - any Toby Keith song - is probably not going to be knocking on the door to the AFI list anytime soon. But hey, at least this isn't the movie based on the Toby Keith song where we put a boot in your ass...because that's the American way. Uh-huh. And it's worked out really well, by the way.

No, this is Beer for My Horses, and the song with that name is not the worst country tune I've ever heard, but it's far from the best. It's an OK ditty if you're out drinking with your friends, I suppose, and that's probably both its inspiration and purpose. The song is a duet between Keith and Willie Nelson, both of whom are in the movie, although Willie has what appears to be a limited role (a shame, because he can act) and Toby Keith, well, Toby Keith is the star.

I remember taking a date to see Pure Country, another vanity picture for a country singer, and while it is not a good film it does have a great soundtrack; I should say that much.  As we were leaving she asked me what I thought of the movie. I said that George Strait isn't much of an actor. "I don't care," she replied. "He's George Strait."

I have a feeling we'll need the same litmus here, because Toby Keith can't sell me a Ford truck and I rather doubt he can sell me the small town sheriff who pines for Claire Forlani.

Poor Claire Forlani.

Anyway, here's the trailer for Beer for My Horses - which I just mistyped as Beef for My Horses, and I think I'd rather see that - and see if you can keep from laughing at the events that transpire about 50 seconds in:

Beer for My Horses arrives in (some) theaters on August 8th. Thanks to MovieWeb for the trailer.

Bet this movie grosses more than all the "Larry the Cable Guy" movies combined.

Saw the trailer for this last night on TV...and actually groaned outload to the screen "Are you freakin' kidding me? Toby Keith gets another movie? Why?"

I'm so glad that when people outside of the state think of Oklahoma, he's who they think is our prototype male. Ugh...

You know, Will, that's an interesting list. I think I'll revisit Stars Out of Their Element later on...

well, I used to be progressive, but now? well, I'm just glad to be around. Toby Freakin' Keith and I learned to kick some serious vigilante ass. No, wait, we learned to vigilanticize with guns blazing and facial hair showin'. Yeh.

Another attempt at coloquial humor and stereotype where good triumphs over evil and the audience won't have to think very hard. Might be funny, might not. Is this Dukes of Hazard meets Lethal Weapon?

"Mexican guy" isn't bigoted. Mexico is a country, and a Mexican is a citizen of Mexico.

Leave the guy alone...He's trying to make a couple of bucks. Why not do it while he can?

Toby Keith is a racist idiot. FREE NOOSE WITH EVERY TICKET!

Claire Forlani needs a paycheck, as does Tom Skerrit and Willie Nelson. When you need work, movies that look like a special two-part episode of Walker Texas Ranger can be dealt with.

These movies wouldn't get made if no one went to them.

Another vapid, boneheaded, and utterly predictable monument to redneckery from the "Ford Truck Man". Redneck trucks, big guns, Hispanic criminals, law enforcement, sexed-up southern women, trucker hats...on the basis of the above preview, I think it's fair to say that we won't be exposed to anything original, or interesting--this horse has already been beat to death by the likes of Larry the Cable Guy. "Beer for My Horses," along with the rest of the lowbrow Toby Keith oeuvre, is likely to establish its only enduring value as an aid to sociological research into the mentality of the contemporary American rube. Bottom line...we need to get these folk an edu-ma-cation!

This is part of the death of movies as an art form. That is so terrible, it makes Micheal Bay looking competent

"These movies wouldn't get made if no one went to them."

Yeah they do, it's called straight to video.

Who cares everyone is so self right about being racist. Who gives a crap. we are all people anyways. look at all of the people who make fun of their own nationality, mind of mancia, chris rock, ect. why can't white people have some fun. O wait we had ower fun right? Hangings shooting people if they came over the border..... The French can still can legally shoot someone if that person crosses their border illigally. and as far as the hangings, white people got hung too, so shut up, please no one cares we are all people we have all been there, grow up, lets all have a little fun and laugh at ower mistakes and move on. We are all human, stupid panicing creatures, right, or do you want to think for yourself.

It's just a movie! I feel sorry for you people who feel they have the right to stereotype others. Toby Keith is doing his job. Do you personaly know Toby Keith? I didn't think so. Do you have nothing better to do with your time then to call other people down. IT'S JUST A MOVIE !

Tuesday, October 7, 2008 | Unregistered Commentersls

Oh my goodness, People need to get a life! If you don't want to see the movie then don't go see it, who cares. Want to call people racist because they say "that mexican guy" in a movie, please why don't you go talk crap to someone who is a racist in real life.
As for Toby Keith, he is an entertainer and in my opinion a good one. He says what he means and stands by his beliefs no matter what anyone else might think.

Before you people badmouth a movie, tv show, song or whatever; GIVE THEM A SHOT. I've watched this movie several times and laugh my butt off. Try good wholesome low budget comedy and get off your high and mighty overpriced CRAP. This movie was probably done for less than what some of those 'big' name actors/actresses make for a cameo. Just because there aren't a lot of big names and high priced sets doesn't mean it can't be funny.
