A group of naive boys find that life as desperadoes in the west is more serious that they understood when they embark on abortive careers in bushwhacking. Violence, betrayal, sombre colours and a Beckettsian whimsy mark this ironic western. Written by

According to Jeff Bridges the gunfight in the forest had to be completely re shot after the film was ruined in the lab. See more »
For the boys' meal at gunpoint with the farmer, the food is repeatedly described as being "sowbelly and turnip greens", which is a boiled dish, yet what they are eating is mashed potatoes and uncooked spinach leaves. See more »

They don't make em like this anymore, a smashing film this. The two leads are excellent and their friends are good too. There are so many great scenes in this film it's untrue! One of my favourite bits is when drew and jake have a big fight in this lady's house, and completely wreck it! It's one of the best fight scenes i've seen. There's humour and tragedy and excitement and tension. a top notch film 10/10
