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
