Ante up – for laughter and action aplenty! Mel Gibson is sly gambler Bret Maverick, Jodie Foster is a charming scam artist and James Garner (the original Bret Maverick from the Emmy-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in this crowd-pleaser that deals you a winning hand. A riverboat poker tourney promises a winner-take-all $500,000…and Bret aims to be the winner who does the taking! But first he must cope with the hangman’s noose, a runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ingrates, rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. Under the wily direction of Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon, The Goonies), these jokers are wild!
