Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man ★ 1991 (R)

An awful rehash of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” with blatant vulgarity and pointless scifi touches. The title duo are nearfuture outlaws who rob a bank to save their favorite bar, then find they've stolen mob money. Some action, but it's mostly talk: lewd, meant-to-be-whimsical soul-probing chats between H.D. and M.M. that would bore even the biker crowd—and did. 98m/C VHS, DVD . Kelly Hu, Mickey Rourke, Don Johnson, Chelsea Field, Tom Sizemore, Vanessa L(ynne) Williams, Robert Ginty, Daniel Baldwin; D: Simon Wincer; W: Don Michael Paul; C: David Eggby; M: Basil Poledouris.
