In the American Wild West, a man needed a remarkable skill to survive. Some were strong, others wise, many were brave ... One knew to never draw an inside straight. Academy Award winners Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster star with James Garner in a romantic romp about the most charming con man to ever ply his trade in the West, the woman who may be his equal and the lawman pursing them both.

Critics Consensus: It isn't terribly deep, but it's witty and undeniably charming, and the cast is obviously having fun.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie's sole purpose is to be entertaining. It's filled with old-time Western action, but it's played for fun here. There are lots of fistfights, shootings, steely-eyed bad guys, coiled hissing snakes, and even a literal "cliffhanger" (one character hangs over a steep gorge for what seems like forever). Occasionally someone dies, but the object here is to keep real violence to a minimum and overstate the battles for humorous effect. There are sexual innuendos, some passionate kissing, a bare chest (male) and a bare shoulder (female), and some cigar smoking. The Native Americans wear war paint, howl, and shake their fists at the sky, but it's delivered to parody the stereotypes that show up in other Westerns.
