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!
