Penelope Ann Miller,
Two lone riders and childhood friends, the rough and silent Harley Davidson and the ragged sun-baked cowboy Marlboro, assemble once more when they learn that their favourite hangout and the place where they grew up, the notorious Rock 'n' Roll Bar and Grill is facing imminent foreclosure. For this reason, against the preposterous demands for a new contract, the two lifelong buddies in unflinching determination to win back the bar, they will decide to hold up the corrupt bank's armoured car, unbeknownst to them that its cargo is not money but a new lethal and highly experimental street drug: the Crystal Dream. Now the bank wants it back and they are unstoppable. Is everything lost for Harley and Marlboro, the two well-meaning but amateurish thieves?Written by
The LAPD motorcycle officer who stops the Marlboro Man is clearly out of uniform. Her clothing consists of a skintight shiny leather riding suit, a non-standard motorcycle helmet and high heel riding boots. She also doesn't remove her full face helmet which would limit or impair her peripheral vision. See more »
My old man used to tell me before he left this shitty world, five rules of playing pool for cash. Lesson #1, always shoot with a cigarette in your mouth.
Can't smoke with no fire, asshole.
I quit!, Lesson #2, always know the table before you shoot.
[Marlboro shoots the ball]
Lesson #3, make sure you chalk that stick... REAL GOOD... before each shot!
[Marlboro shoots the ball again]
Lesson #4, never make a bet... if you can't pay the debt.

Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man is a film not for the serious and not for the serious minded. This modern version of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid casts Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson as a pair of devil may care bikers who live by their own rules and cross back and forth between the law and being outlaws. Sometimes they blend the line real close.
Because some tight bankers are trying to foreclose on a favorite bar hangout of their's, just for a lark these two decide to rob the bank that's giving them the grief. Just like in Charley Varrick it turns out to be a syndicate front that not only launders money, but keeps the drugs on premises including a new designer drug that these two walk off with the prototype.
I will say that Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson have the same easy going chemistry that Paul Newman and Robert Redford had. They make a somewhat silly plot easy to digest.
Daniel Baldwin of the thespian Baldwin family also looks like he's feasting on the furniture playing the head bad guy. There's a gimmick involving a pair of old and patchworn boots that Don Johnson wears. In that final showdown with Baldwin those boots actually play a part in the climax.
This one is one to enjoy and not get too cerebral over.
