4.0 out of 5 stars 1970's Nasville Murder Mystery with Tom Selleck April 14, 2004
Format:DVD
CONCRETE COWBOYS is a very funny movie set in 1970's Nashville starring Tom Selleck and Jerry Reed(Country Music Artist and Co-star of Smokey and the Bandit Movies). Selleck and Reed are a couple of con-artist cowboys from Montana who end up in Nashville in the adventure of their lives.
The movie starts with Selleck and Reed playing a game of poker at a truck stop, where Reed gets them beat up and chased out of town. They hop a freight-train where they wind up in Nashville, Tennessee. Coincidentally, Reed has a friend that lives in Nashville that he calls to find a place to stay. The guy that Reed calls happens to be going out of town and lets them stay at his apartment and drive his corvette, which is very convenient for these two traveling hobos. Selleck and Reed come to find out that this guy is a private detective and they take a case to find a missing girl. Along the way they meet several country music stars such as Roy Acuff and Ray Stevens. I won't give away the suprise ending or any of the twists that befall these two lovable losers, but you won't be dissapointed.
Tom Selleck and Jerry Reed are great as cowboy buddies taking a murder case while posing as private detectives. Jerry Reed is the conniving slick one of the pair while Tom Selleck is the somewhat dumb one, but he does carry a set of encyclopedias with him throughout the entire movie so he can "get himself some learnin".
This is a great movie for anyone that likes country music, since it is full of songs by Jerry Reed, live performances by Ray Stevens, and other country songs of the late 70's. Also, this movie is a great look at all the Nashville landmarks like the Opryland Hotel, Parthenon, and Country Music Hall of Fame.

5.0 out of 5 stars concrete cowbodys is rock solid fun. September 20, 2007
By Bela
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
made for tv movie 1979 is a classic.
Jerry Reed and Tom Selleck play two
cowboys hitch a train into Nashville
and find themselves playing detectives
when a woman offers them money to find
her sister only to discover they've been
used by a friend. This movie moves right
along with drama and comedy. Reed n Selleck
made a great duo and this should've been a
hit tv series. much bettr than his other show.
I BOUGHT THE VHS FOR PART II WHICH WAS FILMED
IN NEW ORLEANS WHICH I REMEMBER CAUSE I'M FROM
THERE. IT'S NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST BUT IT'S
PRETTY GOOD. SELLECK IS NOT IN THIS ONE THOUGH.
IF YOU DIDN'T BUY THE DVD GET VHS BETTER QUALITY.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good movie April 23, 2000
By Tom
Format:VHS Tape
This was a pretty good comedy/action movie. Tom Selleck is a great actor overall. Its a "older movie", but was still entertaning. Well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute and unadulterated CRAP! September 1, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stupidest movie ever made, much like the Smokey and the Bandit; Dukes of Hazzard and other made for TV crap that is suited for the uneducated Southerner to guffaw I am sure Selleck regrets this one for sure. Poorly made, low budget and written by writers rivaling a high school drama class. It is a waste of perfectly good plastic! I threw it away rather than reselling it on Amazon! You must draw the line when redistributing CRAP!

Format:DVD
"Concrete Cowboys" is a late 1970s murder mystery-comedy-buddy film starring Jerry Reed and Tom Selleck as two good-natured drifters having adventures of various sorts. The film begat a very short-lived spinoff TV series starring Reed, but Selleck is the clear star presence here. The film begins with some ill-advised fisticuffs, and results in the two buddies hopping a freight train to Nashville where they encounter many country music stars of the era in a variety of cameos. I was most amused by the way Ray Stevens' live act was incorporated into the film (much to Reed's extremely exaggerated amusement, particularly when Ray mentions "Fruit of the Looms,") while Barbara Mandrell and Roy Acuff get bit parts as well. Rounding out the primary cast is Morgan Fairchild in a dual role that must be seen to be believed (if you don't see this one coming you aren't paying attention,) and everyone's favorite heavy, Claude Akins as Woody Stone, the biggest star in Nashville.

The plot is extremely farfetched and involves a case of mistaken identity, a private investigator with ulterior motives (that aren't supposed to be obvious,) a femme fatale and unrequited love subplot, and Jerry Reed in a hot tub. (To be fair, Tom Selleck is there too.) If you look closely you can see many significant Nashville locations, which are kind of fun to spot. The film has an unfocused feel at some points as it tries to walk a line between a serious life-and-death drama and a lighthearted buddy film. The dialogue underscores this dichotomy, with Reed getting most of the prize lines ("My stomach feels like a gas factory!") Even the villains get amusing names, e.g. a gangster named Mr. Hatcheck (Joseph Burke) who is the evil casino owner, and whose role in the plot does little but pad the running time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Footloose in Nashville October 26, 2009
Format:DVD
Made in 1979, this lively TV-movie spun off a brief (seven-episode) TV series that was probably instrumental in getting Tom Selleck his defining role as Thomas Magnum. It also has a definite Simon & Simon - Season One-esque feel to it, being as it is the story of two unlikely and completely opposite partners and the more-than-it-seems adventure they find themselves falling into. J. D. Reed (played by country singer Jerry Reed, who does unexpectedly well in the role simply by being himself) and Will Eubanks (Selleck) are out of a ranch in Montana and on their way to Hollywood when J. D. loses their stake in a crooked poker game and forces them to hop the first freight they find--which turns out to be bound for "the place [J. D. wants] his ashes scattered," Music City, USA--Nashville, TN. Contacting local PI Lonnie Grimes (Randolph Powell), whom they met some time earlier while he was on vacation, they are offered his apartment and car while he's out of town, on condition that they pick up "a package" for him and keep it safe till he can claim it. Then a client (Morgan Fairchild) mistakes them for him and asks them to help her find her missing sister, a wannabe country star who's been reported dead but whose grave seems to be nonexistent. Operating on instinct and guessery, the pair soon realize there's more going on than meets the eye, as they deal with a hostile plainclothesman (veteran Gene Evans), a floating crap game run by a very nasty fellow named Hatcheck (Joseph Burke), a hired killer, and a Rashomon - Criterion Collection-like confusion of different versions of who Carla was and what she did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie. Watch for duplicate title of Ramblin Man.
Good movie. You can tell it's a dated movie. But good to watch.
But this movie has another name - Ramblin Man. It's the same movie. So don't buy both.
