When Maverick first came out I absolutely loved it & thought the movie was hilarious.I just watched it yesterday & realized I don't like it as much as I use to.It still has a couple funny moment's but nothing that really stands out.The best thing about Maverick were the couple twists towards the end & the final twist that I should've seen coming a mile away but didn't.It's an OK movie but it's not as good as I remembered & hoped it would still be

There's not a whole lot of substance to this Western comedy, but the cast is likable, the action fast-paced and exciting, and the humor charming. If you don't try to look for anything too deep or meaningful and take this as a pure entertainment film, it works well.

If you are looking for a western comedy (much like Back to the Future III) with smart dialogue and hilarious scenes, this film is for you. You rarely have 2 power house artists like Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson come together in a film like this. Jodie Foster was really good in this. James Garner was terrific as well. Watch out for the cool twist which I never expected. Fun film to watch especially if your into poker.

"Maverick" by Yojimbo

Infamous gambler and quick draw artist Mel Gibson teams up with con artist Jodie Foster and lawman James Garner to reach a high stakes poker game. With Richard Donner directing and Gibson in the saddle this was never going to be anything other than Lethal Western. Gibson is at his most likable though, and Jodie Foster shows some talent for comedy as the unscrupulous love interest, but it is Garner, star of the original TV series this is based upon who shows these whipper snappers how it's really done. The plot, such as it is, is little more than a collection of comic sketches as the three try to out-hustle each other and it relies too much on cartoon slapstick and in-jokes rather than genuine wit. It does however capture the spirit of the original TV series quite nicely and has a family f...

Sidesplitting Old West

The Old West was about three things: thieves, women, and cards. All three are the basis to the 1994 western comedy, Maverick. Based on the 1960s TV show, Maverick details the events of Bret Maverick, a card playing, woman charming, gun fighting smart-ass played by Mel Gibson, as he heads to St. Louis for the big, half million dollar winner-take-all 5 card draw poker tournament. We see Maverick try to collect on debts owed to him by a variety of characters on his way to St. Louis. There is the banker, who is robbed while he is there and features one of the many cute cameos, this time by Gibson's Lethal Weapon partner Danny Glover, who utters the famous "I'm too old for this s---!" as he tries to get on his horse. Maverick also need to collect from his Indian friend, played by Graham Greene...
