John Travolta is probably the most unintentionally funny actor going today. From his weird hair situations to ridiculous accents, to Nicolas Cage-esque levels of over-acting in bargain basement VOD movies, Johnny T gives us gold time and time again. And Life on The Line appears to be no different.
This is a “drama” about line workers in a storm, and it features the one-two punch of funny facial hair and silly accent from Travolta. Enjoy this second trailer:
Haunted by the electrocution death of his brother, Beau is devoted to niece Bailey and determined to see her go off to college and away from the life of linemen. Bailey has other plans, which include the strapping second-generation lineman Duncan, whom Beau despises. A deadly tempest is brewing and headed straight to their Texas town. Beau, Duncan and a legion of linemen are thrust into the eye of the storm and must face down impending disaster to keep their community connected.
Life on The Line appears to have everything a stock “dangerous career” movie needs to have: seasoned veteran, young kid in love who deserves a better career, danger, accents, goatees… and Sharon Stone? Hmm, okay.
Life on The Line opens November 18, I’m assuming at a TV near you. Like the one in your living room.
