We gave it a C-

This TV movie comes packaged with the promise of ”never before seen erotic footage.” Actually, it’s only one love scene (between Kris Kristofferson and Joan Severance, of TV’s Wiseguys), it lasts less than one minute and, naked bodies notwithstanding, it’s not particularly hot. If you saw Aces on TV, you’ve seen all it really has to offer.

Another Pair of Aces stars Kristofferson as a modern-day Texas Ranger who sets out to clear his partner (Rip Torn) of a trumped-up murder charge. Joined by Willie Nelson as a lovable con man and Severance as an improbably beautiful FBI agent, Kristofferson takes on a secret vigilante group that is meting out frontier justice to criminals who’ve gone free on legal technicalities. Of course, the good guys win in the end — but they sure do take their time about it. Loose and low-key to a fault, this adventure is about as exciting as a lazy Sunday at the ranch. C-
