120. September 12, 2010 - Maverick (1994)

Hmm. Mel Gibson in a western, huh? Granted, this is a satirical western that pushes everything way over the top and does not at all take itself seriously. It's a fun movie that includes gunfights, tense poker games, a torrid love affair and one hysterical exchange in a Native American language. The end gets a little muddled, between everyone's secrets and double-crossings coming out. Also, it's very difficult to watch Mel Gibson now in anything without making the obligatory racist/anger jokes (even Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes couldn't resist). I'm very jealous of Jodie Foster's hair.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
