Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Peckinpah's gentlest, boldest, and perhaps most likable film to date.
Fresh: A fine movie, a wonderfully comic tale we didn't quite expect from a director who seems more at home with violence than with humor.
Fresh: Sam Peckinpah followed The Wild Bunch with this intimate, eccentric, appealing 1970 comedy, which treats many of the same themes in a soft, regretful mode.
Jason Robards is Amazing in this role.
The story is equal parts comedy, pathos and humanity. Jason Robards will make you laugh and cry with the character he creates in this film. Sam Peckinpah himself said this was his favorite film... Watch it and you'll see why he thought so.
