      Judith Crist New York Herald Tribune The Rounders is one of those utterly relaxed comedies that make ideal entertainment because there's tender loving care every step of the way and no sweat. Aug 15, 2022 Full Review Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press The movie has wonderful outdoor color photography, better than some done for bigger films. Ford and Fonda seem to be having fun in their non-heroic cowboy parts. It's not great, but it's different. Apr 3, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews As easy to watch as catching a Las Vegas stripper in her act, and you never mind too much that nothing much happens.

      Michael L If you don't think this movie is funny... authentic...you ain't no cowboy or ever will be... It's authentic as can be Pay no attention to any other reviews by people who've never set a horse or rodeoed They're what they are... leftists who believe the park surrounded by concrete is being in nature Watch it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Hilarious western with two great old time actors. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member An entertaining movie with little real plot. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyable modern-western of sorts despite the fact there's no big laughs in this comedy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member 161118: The Rounders is a fantastic film in its first half losing a bit of steam into over the second. With that, I'll focus on the positive. The Rounders plays like a Disney production and if it weren't for the drinking, cursing and women jokes, I'd think it was. There are some good laughs contained within this film and it was an absolute joy to watch Henry Fonda, Glenn Ford, Ed Buchanan and Chill Wills do their work. These were artists doing art, complimented by beautiful horseflesh; if you care about that sort of thing and I do. The "...if she wasn't so fat" story had me laughing out of the gate. Today, that scene would get criticized for being insensitive and no doubt liberals would use it as an excuse to riot. Ok, I'm getting a little overboard but my point is; The Rounders harkens back to what I consider better times. Weeks after the 2016 US Presidential Election, with violence still occurring on the streets, my timing in selecting this film couldn't be better. Long live Donald Trump and I look forward to seeing what he can do. Thank God for real men and women. Thank God for the continuing production of classic westerns that reflect simpler times, an era when real men existed and were embraced. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member an aging cowboys western. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
