You have to admire the craft and assurance of the thing even as its artificiality hits you in the face.

Every character, every scene, is marred by the film's double view, which oscillates between sympathy and farce.

The John Foreman production is episodic, but George Roy Hill's direction is so satisfying in catching the full value of the Goldman screenplay that a high degree of interest is sustained.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Although much of its freshness has faded, this still-amusing film reinvented the Western for a new generation.

Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

A cool, charming, anachronistic Western, with great chemistry between Newman and Redford, that reimagines the genre for youths of the era by turning the outlaws into mythic figures.

Looking at the film with a totally modern set of eyes, completely detached from the hype of Newman and Redford in the late 60s, I didn't find a connection to the movie.

One could [say] that Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid set the benchmark for buddy action-comedies to come, but there would never be another film that comes even close to exuding the same kind of charm Newman and Redford deliver in their roles.

iconic, American experience, a classic adventure tale, and a singular slice of late-'60s moviemaking that has never really been repeated

Empire Magazine

Note-perfect performances, a screenplay steeped in both nostalgia and a timely sense of insight, and anti-heroes you can't help but love: it's no surprise that the always re-watchable Butch And Sundance was once labelled the most likeable film ever made.

Made like Cassidy's memorable fight with a fellow gang member: It gave true, old-fashioned Westerns a swift kick to the groin.

William Goldman's script is constantly too cute and never gets up the nerve, by God, to admit it's a Western.
