Silverado ★★★ 1985 (PG-13)

Affectionate pastiche of western cliches has everything a viewer could ask for—except Indians. Straightforward plot has four virtuous cowboys rise up against a crooked lawman in a blaze of six guns. No subtlety from the first big Western in quite a while, but plenty of fun and laughs. 132m/C VHS, DVD . Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Kevin Costner, Danny Glover, Brian Dennehy, Linda Hunt, John Cleese, Jeff Goldblum, Rosanna Arquette, Jeff Fahey; D: Lawrence Kasdan; W: Lawrence Kasdan; C: John Bailey; M: Bruce Broughton.
