For the most part it's First Knight Way Out West all the way.

The kind of film that will have you throwing your popcorn at the screen in disgust.

A big yawn that only reminds us why movie westerns are six feet under and not likely to make a comeback.
August 22, 2001
The bizarre result of another in a long line of westerns tailored for rising actors, who no one really takes seriously in such projects.
August 21, 2001
The movie's presumption of ignorance on the audience's part is monumental.
August 20, 2001
The blandification of the puppy-stud Western reaches its nadir.

Picture 1860s Missouri as Ft. Lauderdale during Spring Break and you've got the idea.

There's no escaping the hackneyed plot or Mayfield's conventional hand.
August 17, 2001
So brainless it's a wonder it can find its own ending.
August 17, 2001
A weak whinny of a horse opera tailor-made for those who can't quite locate Young Guns or The Long Riders in their video store.

Ol' Jesse James has sure seemed a lot of things in a lot of movies: crazy, heroic, desperate, psychotic, villain and victim. But dadburnit if he's ever been this cute.
August 17, 2001
A guilty romp that doesn't take itself seriously.
August 17, 2001
This plot leaves ample room for viewers to sweat the small stuff, like whether Trevor Nunn's score is more Marines ad or deodorant commercial.
August 17, 2001
As a western, American Outlaws is an utter failure. As the basis of a Mad TV parody, it is an unintentional hoot.
August 17, 2001
Aspires to be a Young Guns for the Eminem generation. They deserve better.
August 17, 2001
Despite the absence of karaoke cowboys in American Outlaws, there are enough anachronisms of other varieties to make it an unintentionally screwy experience.
August 17, 2001
It would need only a drug casualty to turn into Behind the Music: Jesse James.
August 17, 2001
It's history be damned in this cartoonish version.
August 17, 2001
The dumbest, most risible retelling ever made of the exploits of legendary bank robber Jesse James.
