The Electric Horseman

Movies, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Simple-minded tract disguised as a romantic comedy in which Redford's has-been rodeo cowboy, condemned to star in breakfast food commercials, takes off for the wide open spaces to stage a protest when he finds that his horse is being kept drugged. Beguilingly sharp at first, but the later stages, with Fonda's toughie reporter tagging along for a story but going all mushy inside, wallow in sentimentality about integrity, ecology and all that jazz.
