Total Times Watched - Quite a few
A movie based on a TV show from the late 50s, early 60s that starred.. James Garner. Hey look, he's in this movie too! This is one of Mel Gibson's most fun movies. Jodie Foster is great in this as the shady crook/damsel. It's definitely a Western, but it's more of a subdued sort of Western. It doesn't follow the Western tropes you'd think it may, and the plot is interesting. It's a little bit jarring to hear modern pop country in this movie in parts because it takes you out of the period a bit, but it's not the worst thing I guess. I'm a fan of cards, too, so this movie hits a lot of good points for me.
If you're more in the mood for a comedy than a Western, this is a good one. Even if you don't care about Westerns, it's a good flick.
