Many quirky spins on familiar standards

... a lighthearted film that never let us forget it was, at core, a comic look at serious people in serious situations.

If there absolutely positively had to be another Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, without Paul Newman or Robert Redford then this belated follow-up is actually pretty good.

Not a bad western, it has good sets, costumes and decent cinematography. It's a bit slow at times but overall it was entertaining. Good leads, well made.
