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.

One of the funniest, if slightest, Westerns of recent years.

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

Very funny in a strictly contemporary way-the last exuberant word on movies about the men of the mythic American West who have outlived their day.

Although Butch Cassidy wasn't the first movie to pair up a couple of wisecracking best friends in an action/adventure setting, this film became the model of how well that approach could work when done right.
