Video Review: 'The Cowboy Way' (1994)

MPAA Rating: PG-13
EW's GRADE
C-

Details Movie Rated: PG-13; Genres: Action/Adventure, Comedy; With: Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland

Carrying on in the tired tradition of Coogan's Bluff and ''Crocodile'' Dundee, Woody Harrelson and Kiefer Sutherland are cowboys out of their element in New York City, headed for a showdown with white slavers who've shanghaied their best friend's daughter. Clichéd culture-clash gags give way to standard shoot-outs and car chases, culminating with our heroes on horseback, racing a subway. Yee-haw! If we never see another cowboy galloping down Fifth Avenue, it'll be too soon. C-
