GRINGO, a dark comedy mixed with white-knuckle action and dramatic intrigue, explores the battle of survival for businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) when he finds himself crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal.
Kyle and Peter Reynolds are fraternal twins who were raised by their mother, Helen, as their father died before they were born. Kyle is dating his pregnant girlfriend, Kaylani, and is wealthy from royalties for his image on BBQ sauce labels. Peter is a divorced with a teenage son who resents him. Shortly after Helen's wedding, Peter recognizes an actor on Law and Order: SVU from photos of his supposed father, and confronts Helen. Helen explains that she had been promiscuous at the time of their conception, and did not want their father involved. When they keep pressing, Helen reveals that their father is Terry Bradshaw. The brothers fly to Florida to meet Bradshaw, who they encounter at a signing event. Bradshaw is excited to have them as sons. As Bradshaw recounts stories with former teammate Rod Hamilton, the brothers realize that Bradshaw had been in Australia at the time of their conception, and thus isn't their father..

When they all leave Terry Bradshaw Motors, Terry introduces his blue Corvette as a 1975, which it was not. The body style used in the movie was produced only from 1980 through 1982, much later than he had stated. Rear glass panel, grille, tail and molded spoilers are key. Wheel design was first introduced in 1978. See more »
After a long week at work if you want a feel good film watch this with a bottle of wine. kind of old school but with a lot of heart. Decent cast. Some good chemistry. And some twists along the way. Very heart warming...Not an oscar winner but a weekend feel good film!
