The Johnny Paycheck song inspired this story of a hot-shot efficiency expert who returns to his hometown to streamline the local brewery. Encounters with old pals inspire self-questioning. Alternately inspired and hackneyed. Cameos by Paycheck and other country stars.

The movie Take This Job and Shove It released in 1981, with a run time of 100 minutes. A Johnny Paycheck song inspired this movie. Take This Job and Shove It is about Frank Macklin (Robert Hays). He’s just become manager at a beer brewery. He just so happens to be manager at the brewery in his hometown. He soon does big changes with the company. He increases the profit of the brewery so much, that his bosses want to resell the brewery to a Texas oil millionaire.
