  • A Wild Tale Of Sibling Rivalry Run Amok

    This was a wild tale of sibling rivalry run amok. As Bart said to Jessie (they always have a woman to compete over as well), "the one thing we don't do is kill each other". However, as Bret and Bart race to cash a check at the last open branch of a bankrupt bank, everything else is fair game : lying, cheating, sneaking - even cutting the saddle straps of a brother's horse. But in the end, if one of them is threatened by outsiders, they stand together (for a percentage of the profits). Most likely, anyone who has ever struggled with a difficult brother or sister will get a kick out of the Mavericks in action with, and against, each other. Hell, even 'only' children will enjoy this delicious farce.
