This is the story of Lincoln Hawk and his estranged son Michael bonding over a long trip back home. Lincoln left them to pursue his own dreams, but never turned his back on his family, however, Michael was deceived to think so by his grandfather. Lincoln enters an arm-wrestling contest in order to win a new truck, as his life is on the road. Having lost his wife and son he believes that the best way to move on is to leave, but Michael goes after him and tells him that he wants to stay with him.
That said, this movie probably has the best soundtrack of the 80's with Frank Stallone, Asia and Eddie Money, just to mention some. I have been listening to it on repeat for I don't know how long!
That said, watch it? Sure. It is a nice movie, but you have probably seen this story other times. Stallone is very cute and he is a good dad, in my opinion, at least compared to the grandfather... not to mention that he puts his sons best interests before his own, which I think is a great quality. Acting wise he was a very passive character, I can't really decide if I was happy with it or not.
Until the next item on my list!
