The story is drawn out and drowsiness invades the viewer, like a victim of the drugs featured on the film. [Full Review in Spanish]

Warmhearted romance with an anti-corporate perspective.

In their second appearance, Redford and Fonda have charm and show good chemistry but, they are too old for this formulatic, old-fashioned romantic comedy about a burnt-out rodeo star and TV journalist.

The Electric Horseman charms and ultimately conquers through high spirits.
May 26, 2008
Horseman falls far short of what it might have been, starting out smart but getting sloppier and more sentimental as it goes along.
May 26, 2008
A moderately entertaining film, but no screen magic from Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. The pic is overlong, talky and diffused.
January 26, 2006
Beguilingly sharp at first, but the later stages, with Fonda's toughie reporter tagging along for a story but going all mushy inside, wallow in sentimentality about integrity, ecology and all that jazz.

colourful and engaging

At this point, I think it's reasonably safe to say that The Electric Horseman is the best American romantic comedy of 1979.

The Electric Horseman is the kind of movie they used to make.

Loved Redford's garish cowboy costume!

The middle is heavy on romance between the two stars -- both megawatt powers in 1979 -- but the central plot, about a stolen horse for God's sake! -- doesn't carry the weight director Sydney Pollack might like us to believe.

Robert Redford is a cowboy and Jane Fonda a TV commentator. The picture is is a pleasant affair, one that sends you out of the theater feeling good.

A slushy, sentimental, and silly love story.
