Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

Whoa, awesome movie, especially if you're a guy.

Instant Comments:
1: The opening credits certainly were different than other opening credits.
1: Who are they?

1: Lol. They consider jumping into the river:
Sundance: I can't swim!
Butch Laughs.
Butch: Why, you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.

1: I like the montage in the middle of the movie. The way the film switches to and from sepia tone has a nice way of setting the mood.
1: Since most of the credits played at the beginning of the movie, the end credits are really short. They play over a sepia tone still of the last frame.

I decided to watch this movie again with my dad. It is a great movie and I enjoyed watching it again. I still love the lines prior to the jump into the river. And the end was, as before, great. I did, however, fall asleep through part of the movie.

Paul Newman and Robert Redford make such a great team. They also did The Sting (1973) together.

I put this on to watch in the background while I graded. Reiterating what I've said before, this film has a great story and its always a joy to watch. I would, however, clarify what I said in my first entry. While I think a male viewer would certainly enjoy the movie, there really isn't anything in the movie that would dampen the viewing experience for a female viewer.

3: Haha. That fight.

3: Their real names.
3: "Raindrops keep falling on my head..."
3: "All of them." "All of them!?! What's the matter with those guys!?!"
3: Haha. "Who are those guys?"
