Highly competitive fishing guides in overheated Florida
26 June 2000 | by (brasilia, brasil) – See all my reviews

I rented this film one hot NYC summer night and fell in love with it. Some of the characters are a little cartoonish but overall it is a good piece worth seeing that exemplifies the beauty of a US state that I have never been to. Wonderful cast that includes Peter Fonda, Burgess Meredith and Warren Oates as an insanely territorial fishing guide. Also stars Margot Kidder when she looked good and Harry Dean Stanton as a melancholy side kick to Warren Oates. Classic all American cast from the seventies. I enjoyed this film because it is a fair portrayal of the working life of a fishing guide and the Florida landscape. It has the same qualities that I enjoyed from Fonda´s later effort Ulee´s Gold. Film is highly recommended.
