The movie is about manic energy, but you can feel everyone straining just to get the next shot on the screen.

Where the Buffalo Roam is a shambling stiff, destined to tarnish the reputations of everyone responsible for it.

[Where the Buffalo Roam] features a number of amusing set-pieces of irreverent lunacy, but lack of serious substance renders film too frivolous and detached from reality.

Laughs aplenty for people who use drugs as a pose, but most will be left wondering if half a pint of Bass doesn't qualify as a revolutionary action.

Mr. Murray is clever whenever he is audible... But the story rambles desperately, and there are times when the screenplay is barely there. Mr. Thompson's only identifiable quality soon becomes facetiousness, and it wears terribly thin.

This is the kind of bad movie that's almost worth seeing. But there are large things wrong with Where the Buffalo Roam.

As a time capsule and a failed attempt to sell Thompson's legacy to the masses, Buffalo has its share of curiosity value. But as a piece of filmmaking, it's pretty worthless.
