* CorruptHick: Sergeant-Major Zack Carey [[note]]Played by James Garner[[/note]] gets on the bad side of one of these, who ends up framing his son for drug possession and cheating him out of his retirement money ''and'' forcing him to sell his recently-purchased boat. Garner's character, however, is a Sergeant-Major in the Army -- literally almost a RetiredBadass- - and owns a fully restored, fully ''armed'' WWII Sherman tank. HilarityEnsues.
