Performers, Cast and Crew:
Blue Collar Comedy Tour veterans Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall team up in DELTA FARCE, a military-spoof comedy featuring their southern red-neck stand-up schtick. Bill and Larry, along with their scrawny friend Everett (played by DJ Qualls), are weekend warriors in the Army reserves. Not only have they not trained, but they see the weekend as a getaway from the pressures of their daily lives. But with the military's forces depleted by the no-end-in-sight Iraq War, they turn to their reservists. Bill, Larry, and Everett are thrown into whirlwind boot-camp sessions, led by the commanding powerhouse Sgt. Kilgore (Keith David), to prepare for their upcoming deployment to Iraq. On their overnight flight to the Middle East, a thunderstorm threatens the cargo carrier, and equipment fitted with parachutes is dumped to lighten the load. Unfortunately, this includes the three bumbling friends, who sought refuge in an all-terrain vehicle to catch up on some sleep. They wake up in the desert, confused and disoriented, and assume they've reached the mission destination. But it turns out they aren't anywhere near Iraq--they've landed in Mexico, where they stumble upon a small village that has been overrun and terrorized by gun-wielding gangsters.
DELTA FARCE is one of the few war films to be released as the Iraq War is in full swing, and it takes a daringly comedic approach. The starring cast members never abandon the style they've become famous for, providing an abundance of silliness and the usual slapstick antics throughout.
