18. 'Rancho Deluxe' (1975)

Bridges and Sam Waterston play two modern day cattle rustlers who run afoul of a wealthy, stuck-up rancher – who in turn sics two dopey, double-crossing ranch hands (Harry Dean Stanton and Richard Bright) and an aging, incompetent bounty hunter (Slim Pickens) after them. With a plot like that, you'd expect some sort of rip-roaring, broad comedy, right? But this is the kind of movie where plot takes a backseat to character and mood, and Bridges is lovably jovial throughout – the wild-man counterpart to Waterston's somewhat more serious-minded outlaw.
