Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Dir: George Roy Hill (The Sting, Toys in the Attic, Funny Farm)
Cast: Robert Redford, Paul Newman
USA, 1969

Seen: Feb 18, 2007 on AMC

Reason the see: It's on my List of 101 Films I Can't Believe I Haven't Seen for literally being 'one of those films you have to see'

This is an excellent buddy movie in a western setting with the great duo of Paul Newman and Robert Redford. The film has an amazing opening sequence and a masterful use of tension throughout, add to that the double protagonists who have excellent rapport. Some times you love 'em and well, most of the time you love 'em! Through the shoot outs, tricks and all in all mischief it is a enjoyable experience throughout.

Shannon's Overall View:

I enjoyed it
I'd watch it again
I'd recommend it

I love this movie. I'm a fan of Robert Redford and loved him in this movie and Newman is wonderful as usual. I'm always thrown by the "Raindrops" song in there though, LOL. Glad you liked it too Shannon!

I love that William Goldman won an Oscar for his screenplay and it seems the whole middle of the movie has absolutely no dialogue. But you're right. A good buddy movie. It's nearly impossible not to like Redford and Newman in these roles.
