Paul Newman and Robert Redford set the standard for the buddy film with this western classic. Sundance (Redford) is a mighty quick draw, and his partner Butch (Newman) is a gifted get-rich-quick schemer. With the law on their trail, the two pack their guns, and, along with Sundance's girlfriend (Katharine Ross), head for Bolivia, away from the men trying to bring them to justice – and death.

Classic tale of two famous outlaws; violence, cursing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is the classic 1969 movie in which Paul Newman and Robert Redford play the legendary outlaws. While in some ways a self-aware movie poking some fun at the styles and conventions of Western movies, many of those conventions are still present -- gun and rife battles between outlaws and the authorities, beer and whiskey drinking in saloons, frolicking in bordellos with prostitutes. In one scene, Sundance is in a dark room pointing a gun at a woman on the other side of the room and seemingly forcing her to remove her clothes; it's later revealed that they're lovers. Occasional profanity: "s--t," "bitch," "bastard," "damn," "hell." Overall, while this movie is very much a product of its anti-authoritarian time, it's also a timeless evocation of legend and myth, and the "buddy movie" aspect of it inspired countless other buddy movies in the decades to come.
