Brief Synopsis: "In late 1890s Wyoming, Butch Cassidy is the affable, clever, talkative leader of the outlaw Hole in the Wall Gang. His closest companion is the laconic dead-shot "Sundance Kid". As the west rapidly becomes civilized, the law finally catches up to Butch, Sundance and their gang. Chased doggedly by a special posse, the two decide to make their way to South America in hopes of evading their pursuers once and for all."

Jim Carrier83 - Newman & Redford...need I say more. Newman plays the nice, wants to be a bad guy, funny, smart, mouthy Butch Cassidy, while Redford plays cold, short-fused gunman Sundance. Excellent movie.

Lisa Marie Bowman75 - The film is uneven but saved by the chemistry between Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
