Product Description

Hold onto your hats and get ready for a wild ride with some of today's hottest stars! Woody Harrelson, Kiefer Sutherland and Dylan McDermott bring the wide open plains to the crowded big city in this rip roarin' urban action-comedy, from popular producer Brian Grazer. A missing girl has Sutherland and Harrelson saddled up for big trouble as they set out to find her within the badlands of New York City. Featuring plenty of excitement and nonstop laughs, The Cowboy Way, is a "wildly funny, edge-of-your-seat romp" (ABC Radio Network).

Somebody in Hollywood thought there was some fish-out-of-water potential in this teaming of wild man Woody Harrelson and slow-burning Kiefer Sutherland as a pair of New Mexico cowboys who go to New York to tame the wild, wild, uh ... East. Well, they were mistaken, because this 1994 action-comedy is little more than a tiresome reworking of Crocodile Dundee. Woody and Kiefer head for the Big Apple to rescue the illegal-immigrant daughter of one of their rodeo buddies (who has mysteriously disappeared), and what they discover is a sweatshop operation run by a hot-tempered thug (Dylan McDermott, before his role on TV's The Practice). That's when the boys start using their ropin' and shootin' skills to foil the bad guys. One measure of this film's credibility is the inevitable scene of the boys riding on horseback through the gridlocked streets of Manhattan. Uh huh. You know how it goes... you just have to go with it or marvel at the sheer stupidity of it all. Of course, forget all the sniping if you're a fan of Harrelson or Sutherland--they're both doing their best under the burden of disadvantage. --Jeff Shannon

    To put it straight and simple, COWBOY WAY is a fun filled couple of hours with some real men tearing up New York City.

    Sonny (Kiefer Sutherland) and Pepper (Woody Harrelson) are a couple of New Mexico cowpokes looking for their friend Nacho, after he up and left to get his daughter out a New York sweatshop. When the cowboys find out that Nacho's been killed by the lowlife (Dylan McDermott) running a racket smuggling young girls like Nacho's daughter into the US to work as slave labor in his rag factories, they're ready to open up an econo-sized can of whupass on the dude, his crew and anybody else who gets in their way.

    Sutherland plays it level-headed and cool to Harrelson's hilarious cocky redneck in the big city, and together they make a fine pair.

    Highlights in this movie include Harrelson wearing Sutherland's ears out during the ride to New York. The scene with them ordering dinner at a five-star hotel will also leave many of you fellas rolling on the floor with laughter. Nothing, however, beats the scene with Harrelson showing up at a fashionista soiree, encountering high end floozies and a couple of Euroqueen designers cruising to get him out of his longjohns.

    Considering that the saw's of torture porn continue buzzing away in dank and dismal hostels, while we are treated to yet another cinematic rendition of redacted defeatism playing out in the Valley of Elah, I've been appreciating my DVD player and movies like the COWBOY WAY here lately.

    Format: VHS Tape
    It's rather more violent than "Crocodile Dundee" or Tom Selleck's early effort "Concrete Cowboys," but "The Cowboy Way" reminds me of both. Once again, the chief thrust is incongruity--the country boys in the Big City, coping with its traps and perils in their own distinct style. And while I'm not a fan of either Harrelson (who plays the womanizing Pepper Lewis) or Sutherland (his steadier, more focused lifetime buddy Sonny Gilstrap), I enjoyed the way they brought their characters to life. What's more, there's an element of inter-hero conflict in the bitter estrangement that has stood between them ever since Pepper failed to show up for a regional event and they had to forfeit their chance at the prize money that would have been "a down payment on [Sonny's] ranch." Besides a very nasty villain and a more avuncular, almost sympathetic one (who is ultimately shot by his young protege), the peripheral characters include the black mounted cop Sam, who plays a major part in the resolution of the case. The scriptwriters reveal the depths of the two protagonists gradually and skilfully, culminating in Pepper's unexpectedly creative means of ransoming the treasured New Mexico State Champion buckle Sonny has pawned to arm them. This is ultimately a story about friendship, loyalty, forgiveness, and courage, and as such it appeals on a very basic level. It may never be called a "classic," but it's definitely worth a look.

    Do you like a tried and true format like the American Western with some interesting twists for the changing times, and two really likeable cow pokes in the big bad city where they, of course, take it by the tail and rope it?
    Hey,this is a funny, funny and totally enjoyable treatment of the genre and you're in the right place for an excellent modern cowboy story. How can you help but love a cowboy? The story and acting are superior without the touch of snobbery from taking yourself too seriously. Ride this one right to the end for great laughs and imaginative situations.
    This movie also proves you don't need much of anything gratutious to make it enjoyable for the younger set and the ancient ones, like myself...

    This is a really good movie for horse people or people who like western type movies. It stars Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland. They are very funny together. The story is about these two guys who grew up in New Mexico together. The become estranged about a year before the movie starts for reasons that they reveal later in the movie and have to work together through the movie to help a friend. The friend is a cuban man who's daughter is being smuggled into america from cuba for money. One of the smugglers get's greedy and tells him he wants more. He leaves a note saying he's going to New York and when he isn't heard from for a couple of days, Kiefer Sutherland get's worried and him and Woody Harrelson head to New York to try and find Nacho and his daughter, where their cowboy ways seem strange and can get them in trouble. The whole movie is very good. It's funny and has action balanced with the comedy very well. It's a good watch for anyone who likes cowboy movies, comedies, westerns, or action movies.

    Professional reviewers have savaged this movie, but I think their attitude is a bit harsh.

    Yes, the plot has been done before. Yes, the humor is a bit forced in spots. Yes, there is a cringe-worthy torture scene involving a calf. Yes, the villain is a one-dimensional cardboard character.

    But, the world will never tire of "buddy" movies, or fish-out-of-water plots. Screwball redneck humor isn't going anywhere either. And if we must have a one-dimensional villain, at least he's dreamy Dylan McDermott.

    "The Cowboy Way" won't win any Oscars, but it doesn't aspire to; it was meant as light entertainment, and it *is* surprisingly entertaining.

    Woody Harrelson is "Pepper", the comic half of the duo, and he has a certain brash charm which actually is amusing to watch. Kiefer Sutherland plays "Sonny", the deadpan half of the pair, and his serious nature is an effective foil to Harrelson's excesses. Their characters are believable, even if the plot strains credibility at times. Sutherland has a memorable moment during a scene that takes place in a morgue after the death of a minor character; the simple grace and dignity of his farewell gesture reveal he has inherited at least some of the great subtlety and power of his father, the magnificent actor Donald Sutherland.

    Their adventures in New York, searching for a lost friend and attempting to rescue a kidnapped daughter from slavery, take a few detours along the way. The pair quarrel, seperate, and Pepper meets some interesting New Yorkers while Sonny gets in serious trouble, but they reunite just in time to kick some bad guy butt with the help of some of New York's finest.
