Two down and out cowboys wind up in Nashville and are mistaken for detectives. They are hired by the sister of a missing singer. Failed pilot episode with lots of Nashville cameos. Campy comedy/mystery.

This is the movie version of a 1979 pilot written by Stephen Cannell for Tom Selleck and James Whitmore Jr. It's an average story about two opposites (one's a genius, the other's a weapons expert) who team up for "impossible cases". It is more interesting as a period piece for the time and for the locations that were used. Parts were filmed in Hawaii, apparently at the estate that would later be used for "Magnum PI". Tom Selleck is a work in progress in this vehicle, playing a one note character and providing the eye candy. James Whitmore Jr. gets to play a more interesting set of characters throughout the story. They are a good team. Too bad they didn't do more together. This movie, paired with all the other pilots that Selleck did in the 70's prior to "Magnum", might make for a fun evening of mindless entertainment. Of course, you will have to beg Universal Studios to release the Tom Selleck collection to DVD or VHS first! This film is currently only available in Europe.
