If you're looking for an intelligent comedy that has smart writing and terrific characters.

Two cowboys go to the big city New York, of course to find a long time friend. Harrelson and Sutherland have an on screen chemistry that is fabulous and the humor and action are well place and timed. This is a very funny movie; although the storyline with the girl getting held for ransom and her father getting killed does get a little drug out. Remember, however, this is completely fictional, any resemblance to real life style dramas should not be expected. The writers did a fine job blending the clash of cultures and the director manages to keep control of the project. When they get there they get help from a New York Policeman, Sam Shaw Ernie Hudson.

So Pepper and Sonny take it upon themselves to set out and find Nacho's killer and also to discover what has happened to his daughter, Teresa portrayed by Cara Buono.
