The Dynamic Duo
It has been said billions of times, but it can never be over stated how marvellous and charismatic the chemistry Paul Newman and Robert Redford have is. Every moment they are on screen and interact with one another is acting perfection and makes the entire movie. The cinematography at points is technically brilliant, the dialogue is beyond words; it can't be explained any better because it was written perfectly. The openning scene introducing us to Sundance is hands down one of the greatest movie moments of all time and tells us exactly who he is, and the same goes for Butch with his line "That's but a small price you have to pay for beauty." This movie could be watched a thousand times in a row and never loose it's brilliance. It is a must see.
This movie brings me back memories.

This Western movie has a superb Newman-Redford portrayal of gunslinging outlaws in their title roles.
I remember watching this movie on TV when I was younger. And I remember hearing the song "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" sung by B.J. Thomas during the Butch and Mary bicycle riding scene in this movie. What a great song.
Part of a great date night
I have set up a date night with my girlfriend to watch this movie. She has not seen many westerns, but this movie is so good that I know that she will love it! Anyone that has yet to see this should stop what they're doing and watch it now! Seriously, the only thing that I love more than this movie is you, Allie!
Really an interesting look at the lives of two criminals. I usually don't like westerns but this was a great movie.
PAUL NEWMAN+ROBERT REDFORD=PERFECTION

Not only is this a great movie, it features one of the most dynamic duos cinema has ever seen.
I love this movie!

Don't rent it, buy it! This is the best western movie you'll ever see!

I can honestly say this is my favorite movie of all time. Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and George Roy Hill were just a match made in Heaven. This movie is a true classic, and if you like this one, you should really check out The Sting: which was also Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and George Roy Hill.
A pure gem. Can't believe I waited that long to watch this movie.
A fantastic classic
This movie is one of the greatest movies that has been made. Even if you aren't a movie buff and don't usually watch older films, you will definitely enjoy this. The chemistry created between Paul Newman and Robert Redford and the way they sell their characters is top notch, and George Roy Hill uses it to his advantage to create a cinematic masterpiece. This movie is definitely worth the buy, you won't regret it!
