The humor is too throwaway when it isn't laid on with a trowel.
In keeping with the audience it is aimed at, the film is self-consciously cynical and insolent, and at the same time fundamentally romantic and seeking to be liked. The combination works surprisingly well, thanks to good ensemble acting.
It is so cool it is barely alive.
There's nothing so hapless as a movie made in the wrong style, especially when the director doggedly insists on that style to the bitter end.
Surprise: Frank Perry kept his wits about him long enough to make this mildly watchable 1974 film about the modern west.
I have to be on the side of any film in which Harry Dean Stanton is ordered to "Hoover the Navajos"-i.e., vacuum-clean the Indian rugs.
An underrated anti-western about modern-day cattle rustlers.
A funny movie set in contemporary Montana that is rich in oddball characters and a light satirical touch
Rambling but entertaining flick.
"Rancho Deluxe" is the epitome of a "sleeper," in both the good and bad senses of the word. Let's face it -- this film is dull. Intentionally dull, even. The setting is the open spaces of Montana, and the screenplay is quite straightforward in indicating the characters' chief motivation for doing anything is just sheer boredom. Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston play a couple of laidback cattle rustlers who torment a swaggering rancher (Clifton James), as much for laughs as for profit. The dialogue is loosely written, and scenes abruptly cut off when the well runs dry. More exciting moments (such as the abduction of a prize bull or a visit to a brothel) are perversely chopped before the real action occurs, and there's really not much reason to watch until Slim PIckens comes along and steals the movie as a wily rustler hunter. Harry Dean Stanton has some nice scenes as a corrupt ranch hand with a heart, but Elizabeth Ashley is wasted. Jimmy Buffett (still a couple of years away from being wasted in "Margaritaville") briefly appears in a bar sequence and sings a few songs on the soundtrack.
Watching "Rancho Deluxe" is an experience that no one should have to endure. The film is unbearable and painful and awful in almost every cinematic aspect that there is. It is horrendously scripted, edited, and acted, and after 45 minutes of watching the director trip over his own two feet countless of times, I shut the film off. What a waste of celluloid.
Elizabeth Ashley, Harry Dean Stanton and Richard Bright...and the scene where Bridges and Stanton are talking over Pong
