Time Out says

Richard Donner's big-screen offshoot of the old TV Western series, from a Butch Cassidy-meets-The Sting script by William Goldman, is slick, cute, formula, and full of lazy gags. Gibson lobs in a narcissistic performance as card-sharp Brett Maverick, up to his neck in oater shenanigans with the likes of con-woman Annabelle (Foster, not a natural comic), 'Marshal' Zane Cooper (Garner, the original TV Maverick), bandido Angel (Molina), and Indian chief Joseph (Greene, in a turn that comes on as PC but seems somehow offensive). A financially successful exercise in target-marketing, but not much of a movie.
