With a name as goofy as this one, it’s tempting to think you have a good sense for what this movie is going for. I know I did. But then I watched the trailer for “The Greatest Beer Run Ever”. It turns out to be a far cry from what I expected. This biographical action-comedy from director and co-writer Peter Farrelly looks quite good and it sports a terrific cast that includes Zac Efron, Russell Crowe, and Bill Murray.
Based on genuinely wild and crazy real events, “Beer Run” tells the true story of John “Chickie” Donohue (Efron). In 1967, Chickie would sneak into war-torn Vietnam on a dare and began taking cans of beer to U.S. soldiers, even those on the battlefield. His idea was to let them know that there are people back home who support them. The trailer is a hearty mix of comedy, wartime action, and feel-good drama. Now hopefully the movie ends up as good as the trailer teases.
“The Greatest Beer Run Ever” hits select theaters and AppleTV+ on September 30th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I saw this trailer yesterday and… it looks alright although I’m wary considering that it’s from one of the Farrelly Brothers and I still haven’t nor do I have interest in Green Book while I haven’t enjoyed anything they did since Me, Myself, and Irene.
I’m not wild about the Farrelly bros but I’m not nearly as down on them as many are. I’m looking forward to this one.
I’m definitely up for this!
Me too. Looks crazy fun but with heart.
This looks like a good time, plain and simple. Good trailer.
YES! Very well done trailer.
Wonderful trailer and knowing it’s based on fact is incredible. I’m in.
I agree. Really well done trailer. It has me onboard!
