Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the buddy film with this western classic. Sundance (Redford) is a mighty quick draw, and his partner Butch (Newman) is a gifted get-rich-quick schemer. With the law on their trail, the two pack their guns, and, along with Sundance's girlfriend (Katharine Ross), head for Bolivia, away from the men trying to bring them to justice – and death.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Very funny in a strictly contemporary way-the last exuberant word on movies about the men of the mythic American West who have outlived their day.
Fresh: The John Foreman production is episodic, but George Roy Hill's direction is so satisfying in catching the full value of the Goldman screenplay that a high degree of interest is sustained.
Fresh: Although Butch Cassidy wasn't the first movie to pair up a couple of wisecracking best friends in an action/adventure setting, this film became the model of how well that approach could work when done right.
Fresh: One of the funniest, if slightest, Westerns of recent years.
One of Hollywood's best ever...
A fantastic classic
This movie is one of the greatest movies that has been made. Even if you aren't a movie buff and don't usually watch older films, you will definitely enjoy this. The chemistry created between Paul Newman and Robert Redford and the way they sell their characters is top notch, and George Roy Hill uses it to his advantage to create a cinematic masterpiece. This movie is definitely worth the buy, you won't regret it!
A pure gem. Can't believe I waited that long to watch this movie.
