      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The film has been hailed in some quarters as a buried treasure, yet while it bears a certain measure of charm, it isn't quite as accomplished as its reputation might suggest. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 26, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Cattle Annie sure is dumb but man will she keep you laughing yes, very good I recommend it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, April 7, 2023 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/06/23 Full Review Martin B Loaded with acting talent. Melancholy but very entertaining. An under rated treasure with great characters, outstanding score and varied scenery. It's clear it can't end well but the journey to the end is still well worth traveling. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review william k Obviously intended as a female variation of Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, this Western does have similar charm, humor and vivacity plus a good star cast, but remains not quite as memorable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 9-year-old me wanted to watch this movie in the theaters, but my parents wouldn't take me, though now that Kino-Lorber has release it on blu-ray, I finally get to watch it. Honestly, the main reason I bought this film is I've had a crush on Diane Lane since "Six Pack" and still really wanted to watch this movie. It tells the tale of two teenage girls in the old west falling in love with outlaws and being pursued by the law. That's about it, but what makes the film work is a surprisingly strong cast. Besides Diane Lane, in only her third film, you also have Amanda Plummer ("Fisher King" "Pulp Fiction") in her film debut as Cattle Annie. There's also Scott Glenn ("Silverado" "Silence of the Lambs"), John Savage ("Enter the Dragon" "Nightmare on Elm Street") Buck Taylor ("Tombstone" "Cowboys & Aliens"), and even Hollywood legends Rod Steiger ("On the Waterfront" "In the Heat of the Night") and Burt Lancaster ("From Here to Eternity" "Sweet Smell of Success"). Overall, the film is lightweight fluff, but it's utterly charming and goes down easy like comfort food. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review jon c The Wild West isn't what we dreamed it would be but it can be wild again. A western movie coming off the rails of the 1970s and based on the book by Robert Ward. Scott Glenn stars next to the late Burt Lancaster to a very young Diane Lane and Amanda Plummer's first on-screen appearance. Two girls, Annie and Jenny are teenagers looking to seek adventure. Doolin-Dalton is their fav gang but when they actually do meet them it ends being far more of a letdown. It's only until the two girls convince them to get back into the game that they can live the thrill they've longed for. The girls get to be a part of the action. But are they too young and naive Is it too soon to tell what's right or wrong?, maybe it's not worth waisting time chasing old men, being an outlaw is maybe just a silly dream or maybe it's the only thing that's a good skill set Another western with great gun fights, a wonderful performance by Lane and Plummer, the late Lancaster is pitch perfect as always, and the film gives the genre much needed feminine empowerment energy that's sorely lacking from many of its ilk. This might be forgotten by the wayside but still a nice little treasure. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Massively underrated. And almost completely unknown due to an utterly shameful lack of promotion by the studio! What were they thinking? Consequently the Movie lost money and deserved recognition. Some things I just can't figure out? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
