McConaughey began working in television commercials, including one for the Austin, Texas daily newspaper, the Austin American-Statesman , which is credited as his first speaking role. The line, "How else am I gonna keep up with my 'Horns?" â€“ a reference to his beloved Texas Longhorns sports teams â€“ gave the local community a look at the young actor, before he was cast in Richard Linklater 's film Dazed and Confused .  In 1992, he was cast as "Joe" in Trisha Yearwood 's video for her hit song "Walkaway Joe." 
Yep, as of this writing the movie sits at a sad 16% on Rotten Tomatoes , something that probably shouldn't be too much of a surprise given reviews were embargoed until the day it came out.
