Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Still have Paul Newman on the mind. Might as well review that fifth movie.

Criminals Butch Cassidy (Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Robert Redford) are the two leaders of the Hole in the Wall Gang (originally The Wild Bunch, but was changed to avoid confusion with Sam Peckinpah's earlier release). After a botched robbery ("Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?"), they're on the run from a mysterious posse ("Who are those guys?").

This is considered the best bromance movie of all time, and I can see why. No wonder Newman and Redford were teamed up again in The Sting. It's also probably one of the funnier movies I've seen in a while.

My Rating: *****

And now, two of the better scenes from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (the last one jump to 1:55):


  1. This is nice, but aren't Hoffman and Voight the best bromance?

    Still, nothing can top The Sting for me. Redford and Newman just sizzle for me in that. And the movie's awesome.

  2. Such a great film, really no denying or avoiding it. Some films are just made to be legendary.


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
