"...With an almost singularly warped comic soul courtesy of Thomas McGuane's script..."
An off-beat comedy centering on a freewheeling pair of modern-day cattle rustlers.
This cult send-up of the pretensions of the new west stars Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston as Jack McKee and Cecil Colson, two cattle rustlers who use a panel truck and chainsaws in their work instead of a lariat. Henry Beige, played by Slim Pickens is hired by the recently arrived ranchers to investigate the losses and brings a touch of the old West to the story and the solution of the crime.
