Maverick on VHS. Starring Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, James Garner. With Graham Greene, Alfred Molina, James Coburn, Danny Glover, Margot Kidder, John Fogerty, Reba McEntire, Waylon Jennings, Clint Black, Corey Feldman. Directed by Richard Donner. 1994.
From the box:
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-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand.
With more twists than a switchback trail and more sleights of hand than 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 runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ingrates, a bagful of rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don’t miss the excitement. The jokers — Gibson, Foster and Garner — are wild!

From the box:
The High School Comedy About The 3 R’s — Rock — Rock — and Rock!
High-schooler Jesse Davis (Corey Feldman of “The Lost Boys” and “License to Drive”) and his band, the Eradicators, know bad news when they see it. And the ba-a-a-dest news of all is the school’s new V.P. of Discipline, who rules with an iron fist — literally.
Can the Eradicators eradicate the V.P.? Does rock ‘n’ roll rule?
It doesn’t just rule… it totally dominates the entire student body in this outrageous, prank-filled comedy, based on characters created by Joe Dante (“Gremlins”) and Allan Arkush (“Caddyshack II”).
Mojo Nixon joins the fun as the Spirit of Rock ‘n’ Roll. And a red-hot lineup of classics and rad new tunes keeps rockin’ from beginning to end. What an awesome way to save school from the uncool!
