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.

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

Emanuel Levy
January 12, 2007
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.

One of the funniest, if slightest, Westerns of recent years.
Jason Zingale
June 3, 2006
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.

Christopher Null

iconic, American experience, a classic adventure tale, and a singular slice of late-'60s moviemaking that has never really been repeated
| Original Score: 5/5

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.

An all-time classic, with Newman as his charming, roguish best and Redford exuding both sex appeal and danger. A whimsical Western that superbly blends actiion, humor and the power of myth making.
