In our current age of 24 hour a day sports coverage, free internet websites catering to gentlemen, and an overabundance of high-budget action movies, it’s not easy to remember the methods our forefathers used to get that testosterone surge they needed. Back in an age when duels, bar fights and gambling were typical strategies, the new Brolden age formally began in 1969 with a Bromance entitled Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
This incredible movie that Broger Ebert called, “revolutionary” not only brought bros out of the saloons and onto the red carpet, but it invited the missus along too. The tale of two bank robbers who are forced to flee to Bolivia is well-written, dramatic, and exciting. While the special effects pale in comparison to modern bromances such as “I love you, Man” or “Shawshank Redemption”, the plot, dialogue, and character development leave nothing to be desired. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, you are tickle city!
