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-0winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand. With more twists that a switchback trail and more sleights of hand that a shell game, Maverick is rollicking proof of how the West was fun. 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 long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don't miss the excitement. The jokers - Gibson, Foster and Garner - are wild!
