The Rounders

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

A pleasantly lackadaisical comedy Western, about a pair of itinerant cowboys who are forever talking about settling down, but instead find themselves once more moving on to the next job. Their running battle with a cussed horse that perennially refuses to be broken is delightful; their run-in with two zany chorus girls (Langdon and Holiday) might have been equally so but for Holiday's over-playing. Ford and Fonda are excellent, but the contrived sentimentality involving the horse gets a little hard to take, and the gently quirkish humour misses out rather too often for comfort.
