| "You Live By The Rules, You Die By The Rules!"...
PRAY FOR THE WILDCATS is about three men who work for an advertising agency- Warren (William Shatner- TV's HORROR AT 37,000 FEET, TV's THE BABYSITTER), Paul (Robert Reed- BLOODLUST!), and Terry (Marjoe Gortner- FOOD OF THE GODS). When a client named Sam Farragut (Andy Griffith), is unimpressed by the campaign they've put together, he tells them he won't make a deal unless Warren and his cohorts will join him on a motorcycle trip through the Baja desert. With each of the ad men having their own private difficulties, they finally agree to the idea. Warren seems to have the most serious problems, including the loss of his career, which he's mentioned to no one, not even his wife (Lorraine Gary- JAWS). Terry neglects his wife (Janet Margolin), who just told him she's pregnant, and Paul's way too busy for his wife (Angie Dickinson- BIG BAD MAMA, DRESSED TO KILL), who's already slept w/ Warren! Leaving their soap opera existences behind, the trio sets off w/ Farragut for their 600 mile journey through the wasteland. Farragut even provides matching "Wildcats" jackets! The "chucka-chucka" music begins as soon as their tires hit sand. For a while, all goes as planned, until the group makes a pit stop at a cantina, where Farragut drinks a few too many gallons of tequila and makes a total fool of himself. The next thing they know, he's up to no good, and someone else pays the ultimate price for Farragut's wretchedness. The trip continues, and Farragut finds more tequila. This doesn't bode well. During a discussion between Paul and Warren, we are transported to a mysterious land where Mike Brady and T.J. Kirk exist in the same show! Amazing! This gets us to the final showdown. Now, it's good Kirk vs. eeevil Andy Taylor! Astonishing! In the end, each character's true nature is revealed. Watch this made-for-TV masterpiece immediately!...
