Where the Buffalo Roam
Based on the writings and experiences of "gonzo" journalist Hunter S. Thompson, Where The Buffalo Roam details the adventures of Thompson (Bill Murray) and his attorney (Peter Boyle), whose character is rewritten as Mexican-American rather than Samoan, as they pillage and plunder their way across America on a drunken, drug-saturated mission to...well, their mission is as yet undetermined, but they set about it anyway. Highlights include a staged broadcast of the Super Bowl from Thompson's hotel room and a scene in which he escapes from the police with a little help from his trusty sidekick. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi

    Loved it! Prelude to Las Vegas


    I became a big fan of Hunter Thompson after seeing "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in 2003. I've read all of his books and other materials and find him to the one of the most fascinating people of our time. I didn't hear about "Where the Buffalo Roam" and I was only 9 years old when it came out. I snatched up a copy and watched the film. I found it to be absolutely delightul! Bill Murray did an awesome job of mimicking HST! ... and just a good, if not better, than Johnny Depp. This movie takes place prior to Las Vegas. It follows the exploits of the Campaign Trail of "72. Add this to your collection!
