| Totally unrealistic and pointless ......
"Molly and Lawless John" has a very young Sam Elliott and Vera Myles roaming all over New Mexico, after he uses her to break out of her husband's jail. Along the way they pick up a new born papoose, who goes along for the planned escape into Mexico. If your idea of entertainment is watching Sam Elliott shave every ten minutes, then you have your movie. If you are looking for an action Western, look elsewhere. The film plays more like a series of contrived mishaps along the trail, and is overly talky to the point of pointlessness. Big disappointment, even for fans of the actors, and it really is a shame because the talent is there, but the script is way underdeveloped. - MERK
