PG-13 | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A kidnapped boy strikes up a friendship with his captor: an escaped convict on the run from the law, headed by an honorable U.S. Marshal.
Kevin Costner's and Bradley Whitford's characters Robert 'Butch' Haynes and Bobby Lee, both smoke heavily throughout the movie. Incidentally the name Bobby is a derivative of Robert, Butch's real name, he prefers to be called Butch.
Robert 'Butch' Haynes:
Never underestimate the kindness of the common man, Phillip.
Near the beginning of the movie, Kevin Costner and his partner escape from prison by climbing down a single strand of rope made of bed sheets which they'd tied off to some plumbing. To mask their escape, once they're on the ground, they release the tied off bed sheets by giving them a couple of simple tugs which send the sheets tumbling down into their arms. They would have had to fold the rope in half and tie a slipknot to the plumbing, climb down the correct side of the doubled up rope, then tug on the other half to release the knot.
