Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, the Earp boys are in a cornfield. It is tall and green, and planted in rows, clearly the work of a modern corn planter. Corn in the mid 1800s would have been spindly, and planted by hand in "hills" not rows. See more »

Quotes

Wyatt Earp: What's wrong with you?
Doc Holliday: What is wrong with me? What have you got? I am dying of tuberculosis. I sleep with the nastiest whore in Kansas. Everyone who knows me hates me, and every morning I wake up surprised that I have to spend another day in this piss-hole world. (To onlookers) All you can kiss my rebel dick!
Wyatt Earp: Not everyone who knows you hates you, Doc.
Doc Holliday: I know it's not always easy being my friend, but I'll be there when you need me.

User Reviews

I usually am indifferent about Costner,however
29 September 2004 | by senator_nocSee all my reviews

in some people's criticisms of the flick I usually see "he was dull" or "he didn't give the character life," and I have to disagree. In actuality he gave the best rendition of the real Wyatt Earp and his life. The movie is a biopic, and for historians like myself it served its purpose, in showing the life and true personality of a figure Hollywood overglamourized. Wyatt Earp was not the type to dance in the snow and was indeed a cold hearted SOB. I prefer this to Tombstone and no doubt Costner was better than Russell. And actually Quaid was the better Doc. I wouldn't say it was a classic movie and spaghetti western versions of the story might be more "entertaining," however the darkness of Costner's movie is chilling and is the version that gets more replay value from me.
