I have to admit that I didn’t give this movie the full attention that I should have – I had lots of laundry to do so I was kind of watching it while doing housework. So bear that in mind while I say a little about it…
Westerns are not my thing so I figured, out of the many Westerns in the top 250 (ugh!), this one would be an easy one to start with. You know, not quite SO “Western-y”. 😉
As I expected, Paul Newman & Robert Redford are great and they’re what made the movie (obviously). With other actors, it probably wouldn’t quite be the classic that it is – the characters are much better than the movie itself. Paul Newman’s character was so charming and likeable. I of course never mind looking at those gorgeous blue eyes but I was also pleasantly surprised at just how sexy Robert Redford’s character was too. Hello Cowboys! Both of them were sexy – Newman in that loveable charming way and Redford in a manly mysterious way. Oh yeaaaah. Hmm. This review is turning horny….
Got a little sidetracked there! Where was I? I think the whole movie has dated pretty well other than maybe the “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” bicycle scene. That’s very, I dunno, “1969” quirky. It’s sweet though and Paul Newman was adorable in that scene. However, he’s still at his hottest in Cool Hand Luke.
I’m starting to think I really suck at movie reviews…! 😉
My Rating: 7/10
