Shifting Gears

Dirt track racing may have its fans, but in “Shifting Gears” it doesn’t prove a particularly exciting arena around which to build a heartland-friendly family comedy. The result, although earnest, is often tepid, overly broad stuff that evokes 1970s-era “Eat My Dust”-type indies filtered through a Disney prism.

Writer R. Keith Harris (also a producer) plays Tom Williamson, a big-box store manager who’s transferred by his distracted supervisor (a scenery-chewing C. Thomas Howell) to another state. At the same time, Tom is left a small-town gas station-garage by his late, estranged father, so he decides instead to pack up his family — wife Carol (Brooke Langton), college-age son Jeremy (Adam Hicks) and tween daughter Stephy (Tate Clemons) — and make a go of it.

A series of obstacles — some credible, some contrived — put the garage in the crosshairs of both a fat-cat land developer (John Ratzenberger) and Tom’s ex-boss, leaving the strapped Tom one option: to win the $50,000 first prize in the “U.S. Open of dirt track racing.” With the help of a former racing champ (M.C. Gainey), the Williamsons jump into the contest.
