This tale of two aging con-men at the dawn of the Great Depression and the biggest oil strike in the history of the world is recounted by Irving Tanner, Jr. (Lou Gossett, Jr.).
Times are hard, when the unluckiest wildcatter in the world, Dad Everett (John Ratzenberger) teams up with Doc Boyd (Kevin Sorbo), a charming snake oil salesman.
Together they convince several new widows (Sam Sorbo, Paula Boudreau, and others) to invest in their worthless oil wells. Then, the unthinkable happens! Our two Casanovas face a challenge: declare another dry hole for a clean escape, or bring the well in like genuine oil men, and likely spend the rest of their lives in jail? Meanwhile, some of their angry investors (Tyler Mane) are fixing to do something about their scheming.
Based on actual accounts.
