Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

Synopsis: Charming bank robbers trade wisecracks and bad ideas on two continents

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the ‘buddy film’ with this box office smash set in the Old West.”

What Did I Learn?: Ladies, if you ever find yourself saying: “I won’t watch you die” to your boyfriend, it’s time to re-think the relationship.

Really?: 1) Why didn’t Butch and Sundance steal either a horse or a couple of rifles from their sheriff buddy the night they were chased by the Union Pacific bounty killers?2) Wouldn’t a couple of fair-haired gringos have stood out like sore thumbs in the middle of Bolivia?

Rating: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a breezily-fun Western with a poignant message about people getting left behind by changing times. Highly recommended. 9/10 stars.
