Rolling Kansas is a 2003 independent film directed and co-written by Oscar-nominated actor Thomas Haden Church.

Rolling Kansas is about five men (a t-shirt salesman, his two brothers, a large narcoleptic nursing student, and a dim-witted gas station attendant) who embark on a journey to find a secret government marijuana field in Kansas that was discovered on a map that three of the young men's parents left for them (known as the Hippies Murphy). On the way, they encounter cops, crazy geese, strippers, and a crazy old man played by Rip Torn.

It was filmed in Lockhart, Texas
