92 in the Shade ★★★ 1976 (R)

Based upon McGuane's novel, the film deals with a bored, wealthy rogue who becomes a fishing guide in the Florida Keys, and battles against the competition of two crusty, half-mad codgers. Sloppy, irreverent comedy as only a first-time writer-turned-director can fashion. 91m/C VHS . Peter Fonda, Warren Oates, Margot Kidder, Burgess Meredith, Harry Dean Stanton; D: Thomas McGuane; W: Thomas McGuane.
