Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man (1991)

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man Quote: “Oh God, if you’re up there, looking down from wherever it is you look down from… look away now.” – Harley Davidson

Before Tom Sizemore and Mickey Rourke made flops of their careers, they starred in one of the most epic box office failures of the ’90s: “Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man.” Was the world just not ready for an action-comedy that played out like a comic book, or is this movie truly rushed and sloppy?

The Shat Crew was fully divided on this forgotten film, but not in the ways you might expect. A few things we did agree on: Don Johnson is a charming S.O.B., Harley-Davidsons are garbage motorcycles, Daniel Baldwin was cheated by the gene pool, and sometimes you need to just let a movie end.

Listener Lachlan H. commissioned this cinematic collection of life advice from all the way down in Australia, reminding us “it’s better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.”

Plot Summary: “Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man” In this action movie, tough biker Harley Davidson (Mickey Rourke) teams up with his cowboy-hat-wearing buddy known as the Marlboro Man (Don Johnson) to help save the bar of a mutual friend. Enacting a plan to rob an armored bank vehicle, the two are surprised to find that they’ve heisted a massive shipment of a new drug. Soon the corrupt bank head, Chance Wilder (Tom Sizemore), sends trained killers to take out Harley and Marlboro, with the duo fighting for their lives.
