He dances around telling her that he loves her, and his idea of work is illegal. He's arrested, imprisoned, and she puts him behind her when she realizes that even prison is just a good excuse for him to play football with the guys. When he is paroled, it's to a job in the "hotel industry" at a board and care home for seniors, where the head nurse is running a scam. Three of the residents respond to Wendell's good heart. Can they expose the scam and help Wendell win back Doreen? Written by <email@example.com>

Watch The Wendell Baker Story - Alternative Versions.
The Wendell Baker Story will never be listed as movie classic. It will
not score at acting awards, and it does have a profound message. That
said, it manages to entertain, make us laugh and smile, and provide
through enjoyment without insulting our intelligence, and without
resorting to endless car chases, fire crashes, or silly special
What we have here is old-fashioned movie entertainment solid acting,
an engaging story, and all of the basics done solidly: costuming,
direction, lighting, editing, and, especially, music.
Both Luke and Owen Wilson are more than competent in their respective
roles as a light-weight con man and a conspiring old home
administrator/head nurse. Indeed, I saw a little more acting talent
here than in Owen Wilson's other recent attempts, such as Behind Enemy
While Owen and Luke's name may be at the head of the credits (along
with their brother Andrew, who is the film's Director), the best
performances come from Harry Dean Stanton and Seymour Cassell, who play
playful, but sincere and believable residents of the old age home where
Luke Wilson's character works, and which Owen Wilson's character runs.
Alas, the same cannot be said for the legend Kris Kristofferson, whose
roll comes off as predictable and trite, with the same artificial "I am
wise and serene" facial expression done far too many times.
The story is easy enough. Wendell Baker (Luke Wilson) spends his time
scheming his next (read first) fortune, planning all kinds of shady and
illegal schemes. Baker and his friend (played by Jacob Vargas) get
caught providing fake Texas identifications to illegal immigrant farm
workers. He ends up in a federal jail in Texas, where he gets along
well and does not seem to miss his girlfriend, played by Eva Mendes.
Baker is eventually paroled, and ordered to work at a "retirement
hotel." While little happens at the retirement place, Baker does not
learn of an ongoing to scheme to ship seniors to Oklahoma, so that the
administrators can collect their pension checks and sell their
medicines on the black market. OK, so it is not Shakespeare. It is
light, it moves at a good pace, and Wendell becomes more and more liked
by the audience.
If one looks, there are messages to be had. We are reminded that senior
citizens have passions and sex drives, that the people pouring across
the border from Mexico largely just want to work and get by, and that
all of us deserve a second chance. Bets of all, we learn this by being
happily entertained by a fun, easy-going movie.
