Don't rent this DVD unless you just want to throw your money away. I think that its only redemption would be for a group to drink adult beverages and just make fun of the movie while it is playing.
We rented the DVD: "American Bandits, Frank and Jesse James" with a picture of Peter Fonda holding a side arm printed on the label. Oh Boy! Pop up the popcorn, ice down the coke, we are in for an old fashion western...............Unfortunately Not!
Almost from the opening scene you begin to have your doubts about what is coming; ten minutes later you are pretty sure; twenty minutes into the film you realize what the next hour has in store for you...basically nothing.
The acting is laughably bad, the script must have been written by a high-school teenager, and God only knows what the director must have been thinking.
We would say that it reminded us of the kind of stuff that used to be shown at a Drive-In Movie on a off night, but that would be an insult to Drive-In Movies. Save your hard earned money and let this little title just hopefully disappear into the Land Of Movies Lost. OR: Rent the movie, pretend that you like it for a while, and then realize that this review was accurate and you wasted your money. By then, twenty minutes into the movie or so, there is still the adult beverage angle to try and help you from hitting the eject button and admitting that you rented a flop:)
