Doch Brown kriegt Wind von dem tierischen Plan und setzt einen leicht senilen Detektiv auf sie an. Besonders amsant Die schrgen Dialoge in diesem Film, die ebenso geschliffen sind wie die Kettensge, mit der Jack und Cecil ihre Beute in grillgerechte Hppchen zerlegen.

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it! 12 Sep 2010
I totally disagree with the previous review of this movie. I wasn't expecting much from it, but I figured I'd give it a go and I'm very glad I did as I found it to be a real hoot and I thorougly enjoyed it! Ignore the negative review and check it out, you may find yourself as pleasantly surprised as I was.

2.0 out of 5 stars Once is more than enough 12 Sep 2006
Recently, I read a book by an author who, after having moved from New York to Montana, became entranced by the Great Plains. Contributing to this fascination was the film RANCHO DELUXE, which the writer said he saw eight or nine times. My curiosity was piqued, especially since it was filmed in and around Livingston, Montana, a pretty town which I've had occasion to drive through.

Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston, both much younger then (1974), play the small-time cattle rustlers Jack and Cecil respectively. Their poaching enrages a local rancher, John Brown (Clifton James), who bought his spread after moving from the East with the profits from a chain of beauty parlors. Brown declares war against his unknown tormentors, and imports a decrepit ex-horse thief turned range detective, Henry Beige (Slim Pickens), to solve the case.

The best part of this film is the scenery, which is spectacular. Beyond that, I'm left wondering how starved for entertainment one has to be to watch this stinker more than once. Perhaps the video rental outlets in Montana are poorly stocked. It sure beats me. The plot was lame, the acting second-rate, and the 93 minute running time mind-numbingly endless. The Jack and Cecil characters - the heroes (?) of the story - were obnoxious at best and simply unsavory at worst. Of all the major and minor players, only the persona played by Pickens was in any way likable. But, in the end, even he couldn't save this high plains clunker. The video jacket claims RANCHO DELUXE to be a "cool comedy". Pardner, save yourself the cost of the rental and sock it away towards the down payment on a pick-up truck.

5.0 out of 5 stars the west- like it or leave us alone 10 Feb 2005
By Karen A. Lebens - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm one of the people who has seen this movie numerous times and loves it. I first watched it with a friend who grew up around the Crazy Mts and knew exactly what was being shown. I guess if you don't know the rural west and have no sense of humor beyond the Adam Sandler fart joke level this will not be a movie for you but if you appreciate nuanced acting, great locations and a natural story flow you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Livingston Saturday Night 19 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Great movie! For those who have seen the influx of the rich and famous into western Montana will love the spoof on the cattle rancher from NY. Jeff Bridges, Sam Waterston, and Slim Pickins are awesome! Plus, you can't beat Jimmy Buffet, mid-70's hair and mustache, playing Livingston Saturday night in Livingston!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bridges & Buffett, Need I say more? 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Not your typical Hollywood movie. Very funny, with a drier sence of humor. Jimmy Bufett music from begining to end, not to mention an appearance mid-way through; what a high light! Bridges was great as usual, playing a confident, young cattle thief. Wouldn't he play a great Joe Merchant? I recomend this as a "get together with the guys" show! You'll love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Last ride of the Postmodern Plainsmen 8 May 2002
By "captaincaveman56" - Published on
"Rancho Deluxe" easily ranks among my top 10 films of all time. In addition to great actors, and wickedly funny lines, there's some really biting satire in the film about the modern west. One of the really great things about it is that its theme of the old and new west colliding is echoed in the ensemble of actors from earlier generations (eg Slim Pickens) alongside newer actors (eg Bridges and Waterston). I don't generally dig on movies made or set in the 70's, but I'm really impressed with how well "Rancho Deluxe" holds up.

5.0 out of 5 stars McGuane's Best Screenplay 22 Mar 2001
By Shaun Mason - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is pure McGuane with its typical brilliant dialogue, whacky sex, sense of manners in the face of desperation, and cynical modern take on the Code of the West. By far the stand-out performance in Rancho Deluxe is by the brilliant late character actor Slim Pickens as the stock detective hired to track down the rustlers. The scenes he has with his daughter, played by Charlene Dallas are just terrific. Slim pratically stole Blazing Saddles and he completely steals this film because he is the perfect McGuane character, a combination of gristly, amazingly experienced cowboy, and endearing, strange personality that like so many characters literally keeps you guessing right up to the end whether or not he is completely out of his mind. This movie is pure fun, and even has a message about the West and its modernization. It's also a romantic film in more ways than one. Waterston as Bridges' Native American friend has a very good scene with the character's father, who is trying to be proud, but suspects his son is up to no good. I never get tired of this movie. Every second Pickens is on the screen you have a very large smile on your face. This is McGuane's screenwriting at its most heartfelt, and it pretty much could have been a novel if he had so chosen. Cinefiles agree it's a cult classic comedy western, and it is probably the best representation on film of McGuane's ideas, feelings, and dialogue prowess.
