The Mild West

American Outlaws' parallel dimensions diminish Jesse James into a cuddly, goofy bore

The fresh-faced cast isn't terribly good or bad -- Farrell and company should be fun for women to look at, while Ali Larter, as Jesse's love interest, Zee Mimms, should satiate the fellas. Never mind that she's a blond playing a historical figure noted for having dark hair. Terry O'Quinn and Kathy Bates show up in amusing supporting roles, while Ronny Cox is given very little to do as Zee's dad.

Watered down: Colin Farrell (as Jesse), pictured with Ali Larter (Zee), shows that he can sink without good material.

Bottom line: If you haven't seen a western in a long time, and don't need no stinkin' masterpiece to satisfy you, American Outlaws will probably do you fine. The rest of us can wait.
