A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Philo takes part in a bare knuckle fight - as he does - to make some more money than he can earn from his car repair business. He decides to retire from fighting, but when the Mafia come along and arrange another fight, he is pushed into it. A motorcycle gang and an orangutan called Clyde all add to the 'fun'.Written by

The final fight scene around the town square in Jackson took two days to film closing the streets during the busy June tourist season. Merchants around the square were not happy and many were compensated mainly for their signage showing up on film. Others because of complaints for losing customers. The fight scenes used up to 300 local extras at times for background. Some well known locals with quick cameos included Jerry Spence, the famous trial lawyer, Jackson's morning DJ Skip Mahoney among others. It was reported that tourism to Jackson Hole went up 30% after the film was released the following Summer. See more »
When Philo is dragged along the ground by Clyde, Philo is lifting his own head up off the ground every time he is pulled along. However, he's supposed to be unconscious from the knock to the head from the butt of the shotgun. He should not be able to pull his own head up every time he was pulled along. See more »
In the version shown on network television, scenes were added that were cut from the theatrical and home video versions. Those scenes include: Big Tony's thugs shooting Beekman's snake (the scene showing Beekman later eating the snake when he finds out the fight is on exist in all prints) and Big Tony ordering his commercial jet to head back to Jackson for the big fight. The final credits are time compressed or speeded up to end sooner. See more »
I just love this movie. I love the music in the film because i am a fan of country music. Clyde is as funny as ever. Every time he came on and done something stupid I was in fits of laughter. The motorcycle gang were just as funny when they went through the tarpit and then they started hardening up because of the tar. The other part of the film where Clint's girlfriend is kidnapped by this mob boss is pretty good. And the bare knuckle fight scenes are well choregraphed as well.
