It's a plot that unravels on its own, without characters, without anything, not even a point of view. It's a zombie.
Half of the movie wants to be cheerful, and the other half seems morbid and disenchanted.
Ultimately, Sunset plays like deluxe dinner theater fare. It's a diversion to take along with your after-meal coffee and dessert.
A tale that is not quite a comedy, or a murder mystery, or a crime thriller, or an expose of Hollywood slime, but manages to make half-hearted stabs in all these directions.
One of the biggest flops of 1988, Blake Edwards' Sunset is highly uneven, but gorgeous period production values and the easy-going charm of Garner and Willis save it.
Garner's a great Earp (see "Hour of the Gun") but this witless movie trashes not one but two great Western legends.
A misfire on all counts
Better than you'd think.
Re-watched this last night with my dad. We used to watch this film over and over when I was younger and although I never remember it being great I always used to enjoy it. It's still fun and the film has a great period detail look to it. Bruce Willis wasn't yet the big star he would become (although he would do 'Die Hard' that year) but had worked with Blake Edwards on 'Blind Date' and brings a lot of his Moonlighting charm to the role of real life cowboy star Tom Mix. However James Garner is the star here and steals the film from Willis. He would do the same again in a few years in 'Maverick' with Mel Gibson. This is probably one of the first hollywood villains Malcolm McDowell played and is loosely based on Chaplin. The whole thing is a lot of fun and an innocent way to spend a couple of hours. And remember, it's all true...give or take a lie or two.
