I don't know why people rave about this vintage crime-drama from 1967. It's pretty dreadful movie-making, in my opinion.

Its fictionalized story is supposed to be taken dead-seriously, but, it's presented in such a preposterous manner that it actually comes across like a slapstick comedy most of the time.

All of the characters are totally unlikable. And, the sickeningly dysfunctional love affair (!?) that transpires between Clyde and Bonnie is enough to make any normal person gag with revulsion.

Let me tell ya - This 1967 crime-drama (set in the early 20th century) didn't have enough going for it to hold my undivided attention for more than but a few minutes at a time.

And, what really began to grate on my nerves in this story was all of the thwarted attempts at sex that took place between the Bonnie and Clyde characters.

Man, the sniveling soap opera that went on between these 2 gloating, bickering, gun-crazy airheads was enough to make this dissatisfied viewer start to press the fast-forward button on my handset more often than I really should have.

Directed by Arthur Penn in 1967, this American docudrama depicts the lives of Bonnie and Clyde and their gang.
The film seems to glorify murderers while depicting the final scene as one of the bloodiest death scenes ever made.
Although I don't like the sleazy and moronic pair, I enjoyed it as a bang-bang-bang entertaining piece.

The most influential American film of the Sixties, that's all. For the easily confused, this is a work of fiction, not a documentary.

A classic! Definitely a must-see, despite some biographical inaccuracies.

Historically inaccurate. Bonnie Parker was no Faye. A classic, certainly but very slow and complete lack of biographical character development.

Personally, I don't care one bit about all of the praise that this film has garnered for itself over the last 40+ years. For the most part, I found this one's story (as well as its title characters) to be pretty dull stuff, in the long run.

It sure seemed to me that noted film-maker, Arthur Penn, couldn't make up his mind whether he was directing a dead-serious crime-drama, or a silly, empty-headed, little slapstick comedy.

I'd been telling myself that I'd get around to watching this one someday, but given the time period of its release, I wasn't expecting much. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It's no blockbuster, but I was definitely entertained.

Bonnie and Clyde is a Five Star All TIme Top Ten Pick of mine. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway put in their best acting of all their movies. Gene Hackman adds a lot to the movie as Clyde's brother. It is all true and an wonderful story of crime, adventure, and romance. I watch this movie every couple of years just to enjoy it all over again!
