Movie Reviews

The west- like it or leave us alone
Karen A. Lebens | diablo | 02/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm one of the people who has seen this movie numerous times and loves it. I first watched it with a friend who grew up around the Crazy Mts and knew exactly what was being shown. I guess if you don't know the rural west and have no sense of humor beyond the Adam Sandler fart joke level this will not be a movie for you but if you appreciate nuanced acting, great locations and a natural story flow you will enjoy it."
Bridges & Buffett, Need I say more?
Karen A. Lebens | 08/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not your typical Hollywood movie. Very funny, with a drier sence of humor. Jimmy Bufett music from begining to end, not to mention an appearance mid-way through; what a high light! Bridges was great as usual, playing a confident, young cattle thief. Wouldn't he play a great Joe Merchant? I recomend this as a "get together with the guys" show! You'll love it!"
Livingston Saturday Night
04/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great movie! For those who have seen the influx of the rich and famous into western Montana will love the spoof on the cattle rancher from NY. Jeff Bridges, Sam Waterston, and Slim Pickins are awesome! Plus, you can't beat Jimmy Buffet, mid-70's hair and mustache, playing Livingston Saturday night in Livingston!!"
McGuane's Best Screenplay
Shaun Mason | Los Angeles, CA | 03/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is pure McGuane with its typical brilliant dialogue, whacky sex, sense of manners in the face of desperation, and cynical modern take on the Code of the West. By far the stand-out performance in Rancho Deluxe is by the brilliant late character actor Slim Pickens as the stock detective hired to track down the rustlers. The scenes he has with his daughter, played by Charlene Dallas are just terrific. Slim pratically stole Blazing Saddles and he completely steals this film because he is the perfect McGuane character, a combination of gristly, amazingly experienced cowboy, and endearing, strange personality that like so many characters literally keeps you guessing right up to the end whether or not he is completely out of his mind. This movie is pure fun, and even has a message about the West and its modernization. It's also a romantic film in more ways than one. Waterston as Bridges' Native American friend has a very good scene with the character's father, who is trying to be proud, but suspects his son is up to no good. I never get tired of this movie. Every second Pickens is on the screen you have a very large smile on your face. This is McGuane's screenwriting at its most heartfelt, and it pretty much could have been a novel if he had so chosen. Cinefiles agree it's a cult classic comedy western, and it is probably the best representation on film of McGuane's ideas, feelings, and dialogue prowess."
