Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "..what distinguishes this slack, low-stakes comedy about bank robbers and their shared gal from its famous 32-year-old predecessor "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,'' is the self-consciousness of the zaniness.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "..a poorly-focused, meandering motion picture that occasionally offers moments of enjoyable banter and mildly amusing comedy. The movie can't decide what it wants to be, so it gives us elements of a number of generic cinematic staples: the romantic triangle, the buddy movie, and the caper film.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "Bandits is a movie so determined to be clever and whimsical that it neglects to be anything else. That decision wouldn't be fatal if the movie had caved in and admitted it was a comedy, but, no, it also wants to contain moments of pathos, suspense and insight, and it's too flimsy to support them.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "The fairly predictable story is the least of Bandits' charms. Rather, it's the performances, writing and taut pacing that distinguish this film. Like the public that can't get enough of the bandits' antics, one can't help but root for this pleasantly escapist movie.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Not a movie everyone loved, but most enjoyed it, some much more so than others. The relatively high number of "Good" opinions is actually a bit on the low side. This coupled with the high number of "Excellent" and "Fantastic" opinions indicates a movie that most will enjoy, at least to some degree. Also, you'll notice there is little difference between the male and female opinions. The small number of negative comments shows there wasn't any main reasons why some didn't like the movie.

I RECOMMEND "BANDITS" since I'm confident you will either enjoy it very much or at the very least find it somewhat enjoyable. I was surprised that my, very picky eleven-year-old even loved it, so I recommend it to young teens and older kids - but parents, be sure to read the detailed content first.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
I thought it was very entertaining and funny. It may not be what many of you may be expecting. It's NOT an action film with Bruce blowing up everything. It's more of a buddy movie with a love interest twist. It contains a lot of dialog. Fortunately most of this dialog is quite funny. Also, the characters are great.

It may get a little slow in spots for some younger viewers who demand lots of action. But I feel most younger viewers will enjoy the characters and humor.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BANDITS to everyone that goes in knowing this is NOT an action flick.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Suave, irresistible Joe (Bruce Willis) and his hypochondriac partner Terry (Billy Bob Thornton) have escaped from prison. Cutting a swatch from Oregon through California, these fugitives rob banks in order to finance their scheme for a new and somewhat legitimate life south of the border, leaving a trail of terrified bankers, bad wigs - and an adoring public - in their wake.

Unfortunate, things get more complicated when they meet Kate Wheeler (Cate Blanchett), an ordinary housewife sick of her boring life - who happens to run into Terry with her car. Kate joins the bandits on their cross-country spree, and eventually she steals something, too - their hearts. Both guys fall in love with Kate - and Kate falls for both of them. Joe and Terry are far from ideal on their own, but together they make up the perfect man...
