Flatbed Annie-Rory Calhoun

Treatment 68 – Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie

It’s our second ever Dougless podcast! NOOOOO! And, boy could we have used him on this episode to bring some joy to an otherwise joyless movie. We continue our series of truck-drivin’ films in a little something we call “Large March.”

Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie: Lady Truckers

This is a boring, lifeless made-for-TV movie that even Annie Potts couldn’t save. It’s got trucks, lady truckers, random hijackers, an annoyingly persistent repo-man, and a young Rory Calhoun! It also has the guys at their wits end, trying to find something good to say about this film.

CRINGE… as Matt, yet again, abuses our listeners and truck drivers across the USA!!!

THRILL… as Marc, Kirk and Matt give a tuneful rendition of the type of theme song, this movie would have, if it made it to series!!!

WONDER… at the audacity of filmmakers that made a truck driving movie full of southerners and cowboys, but still set the whole thing in Southern California!!!

If you’ve got a hankering for some self-torture, you can find Flatbed Annie & Sweetie Pie: Lady Truckers on Netflix to watch instantly. If Matt hasn’t driven you to hate us, please subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and write us a review, or give us a 5 star rating! Then join us next week, for the next in our truckin’ series!

Next Week’s Treatment: We continue Large March with White Line Fever!! It’s available to watch in full on YouTube!

  1. cbs broadcast annie potts and better off truckin on february 10, 1979. down the dial at exactly the same time nbc was debuting the 1st episode of bj and the bear

    the love boat was on abc im sure the boat had engine trouble and Gavin MacLeod had to drive the passengers to puerto vallarta on an 18 wheeler

    anyhow everyone loves the bj and the bear song

    lets sing

    hey there marc mcdon-old
    your studio is controlled
    by microphones that smell just like red-maaaaaan
    schlock t is on the air
    with kirk matt and doug and that brit whos sometimes there

    kirk has fifty eyeballs
    doug sounds like honky lou rawls
    matt just wants to watch encino maaaaaaan
    film streams and trucker themes
    aol accounts and luxurious mustache

    truckin through the map and
    nothin ever happens
    i wish that marges name was decembeeeeer
    itunes and good reviews
    shlock treatment and that brit whos sometimes there

    honk

    1. I don’t even know how the BJ and the Bear song goes but I have to agree that the ST people have to sing it now. Perhaps if they don’t know the words they can use the music from Silver Spoons.

  2. I bet Doug would have laughed at your Better Off Dead reference. Which, speaking of which, reminds me of how I felt towards Netflix after watching this movie… “I want my two dollars!”.

    1. Doug laughs at (almost) all my jokes! In fact, I bet he would have made that “I want my two dollars” joke, too! Thanks, psuedo-Doug!
