Based on the writings and experiences of "gonzo" journalist Hunter S. Thompson, Where the Buffalo Roam details the adventures of Thompson (Bill Murray) and his attorney (Peter Boyle), whose character is rewritten as Mexican-American rather than Samoan, as they pillage and plunder their way across America on a drunken, drug-saturated mission to...well, their mission is as yet undetermined, but they set about it anyway. Highlights include a staged broadcast of the Super Bowl from Thompson's hotel room and a scene in which he escapes from the police with a little help from his trusty sidekick. Jeremy Beday (

poor, waste of time by C00002112 - December 18, 2008
I strongly recommend the Depp/Gilliam movie "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas" over this one. That movie had a very good sound track and plenty of quotes of Thompson's vivid writing; this one has neither. Apparently this DVD is not the original 1980 theater version of Where the Buffalo Roam, but a poor retread using schlocky music and some bad dubbing. SEE THE AMAZON REVIEWS.
