Apparently we've been wrong all this time in
thinking that the notorious Jesse James was
not a womanizing, hell-raising bank robber.
He was actually a kind-hearted Robin Hood of
the Old West heroically breaking the law for
the good of the little people. Therefore, I
personally would like to thank director Les
Mayfield for setting the record straight.
But, on second thought, can a director with a
history of cinematic flops such as Encino
Man and Flubber be trusted with
this insult to classic Westerns, with its
amateur stunts, melodramatic mush of cheesy
teenage-like romancing, ridiculous macho-man
hostility and fake sets? I think not.
American Outlaws should be outlawed in
