92 in the Shade (1975)

Warren Oates and Peter Fonda are two rival tour boat guides in some godforsaken frog puddle in Florida, in this hilarious farce directed by Tom McGuane, who wrote the original novel. And the result is as eccentric as anything else from McGuane's pen that's ended up on the screen. Elizabeth Ashley steals the movie as the housewife who always wants to wear a majorette uniform. How's this for a 70's cast: Harry Dean Stanton (in one of his best roles), Margot Kidder, and Joe Spinell (who, of all things, shows he can play comedy!)
