One can't help feeling that the criticism of modern America hits out at all too easy targets in a vague and muffled manner.

A 'talky' film without much to say.

The film has an engagingly profane, scruffy looseness, a hallmark of Hal Ashby and Robert Towne's careers, that undermines the conventions of the narrative.

Salty, bawdy, hilarious and very touching.

Relentless, profane, cynical and bitterly funny, this still ranks among the best work by Nicholson and Ashby. An exhilarating trip from start to finish.

O trio principal, beneficiado pela abordagem quase documental de Ashby, ajuda a construir um filme que conquista pela dinâmica dos personagens e sua camaradagem crescente em um mundo de autoritarismo e injustiças.
| Original Score: 5/5

Nicholson's cigar-chomping, profanity-spouting grunt is one of the greatest incarnations of stunted machismo onscreen, and he's brilliantly complemented by Quaid's picture-perfect awkwardness and Young's bracing cynicism.

The interaction, dialogue, and parent/child-esque relationships are very well done, if somewhat repetitive.

One of the best films of (and about) the 1970s.

Jack Nicholson in one of his defining performances during a decade packed with 'em.
