Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The humor is too throwaway when it isn't laid on with a trowel."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"There's nothing so hapless as a movie made in the wrong style, especially when the director doggedly insists on that style to the bitter end."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A funny movie set in contemporary Montana that is rich in oddball characters and a light satirical touch"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"In keeping with the audience it is aimed at, the film is self-consciously cynical and insolent, and at the same time fundamentally romantic and seeking to be liked. The combination works surprisingly well, thanks to good ensemble acting."
‑ , Time Out
"Surprise: Frank Perry kept his wits about him long enough to make this mildly watchable 1974 film about the modern west."
‑ Don Druker, Chicago Reader
"Rambling but entertaining flick."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"It is so cool it is barely alive."
‑ Richard Eder, New York Times
"An underrated anti-western about modern-day cattle rustlers."
