Packaged and sold as an outdoor actioner, Many Rivers to Cross is as much a comedy as anything else. Robert Taylor stars as 18th century trapper Bushrod Gentry, who is himself entrapped into marriage by the spunky Mary Stuart Cherne (Eleanor Parker). Escaping his marital responsibilities (which were impressed upon him on threat of death), Gentry heads into the North Country, with Mary in hot pursuit. Hero and heroine spend the rest of the picture taking turns rescuing each other from hostile Indians. Some of the humor is predicated upon the wholesale slaughter of the "redskins", and as such is a bit hard to take when seen today. Supporting Taylor and Parker are Victor McLaglen as the heroine's burly father, and TV-stars-to be James Arness (Gunsmoke) and Russell Johnson and Alan Hale Jr. (Gilligan's Island).

Van W (jp) wrote: A decidedly underrated and generally misunderstood film. A classic case study in surrealist film. Wonderful cast, balancing one another out. Jody Foster and Grace Jones, as well as Barkin herself, provide some touches of humor in an otherwise desperate end-of-life drama.The film made me yearn to end my life on a party binge in southern Spain, but then who doesn't want to do that?

Bill T (au) wrote: Somewhat silly actioner here as Tommy Lee Jones (yessss) in all his mid 80's glory, goes against Linda Hamilton (whaaaaa?) and yes, Robert Vaughn to retrieve a tape he stored in a VEHICLE FROM THE FUTURE! Actually, the vehicle is a mighty fast car, and Jones stored that tape in there so that the OTHER bad guys don't find it while punching Jones silly. Meanwhile, Hamilton looks all pouty and mean in her high hair while trying to take orders from her mean boss. But Tommy Lee Jones' sex appeal is too much for her! Ha ha! Soon she's putty in his hands and joins him to get rid of Vaughn. Verrrrrry 80's here, with the clothes the music etc, so you might enjoy it for the sheer cheesiness, other then that... well..

Toilet humour and so-so animation with nothing of substance to back it up. There are a handful of funny lines, but thats about it. Hell and back indeed...Resonant Line: "Remy: Just swear on the book of Beelzebub."
