Maverick is recreated from the character James Garner created in the 1950s TV program. Maverick is a gambler who would rather con someone than fight them. He needs an additional three thousand dollars in order to enter a Winner Take All poker game that begins in a few days. He tries to win some, tries to collect a few debts, and recover a little loot for the reward, all with a light hearted air. He joins forces with a woman gambler with a marvelous, though fake, southern accent as the two both try and enter the game. Written by

When Angel is beating up the 5 guys who pretended to fight Maverick the night before, he deals with the last guy by wrapping a bullwhip or leather strap of some sort around his neck, choking him against a pillar. In 2 or 3 shots, the strap is wrapped around his throat, but not the pillar. Other times, it's wrapped around both as it should be. See more »
Now, there's something I want you to do for me.
Never. I am a lady. Not if you were a hundred years old, not if I was a hundred years old...
Calm down. I don't want to go to bed with you, lady.
Why - Why not? I'd be too frightened. God knows what parts of me you'd steal. I'd wake up with all sorts of things missing.

I laughed throughout this movie. Mel Gibson still managed to stay suave and handsome as usual even though his character is supposed to be "bumbling." He and Jodie Foster had amazing chemistry. I enjoyed Danny Glover's cameo and reference to the "Lethal Weapon" movies. And James Garner, the original Maverick, was a delight. The movie had a bunch of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very end. (Mel's bathtub scene helped, too.)
