When Joe Buck (Jon Voight), a good-looking, naively charming Texas 'Cowboy' makes his way to the Big Apple to seek his fortune, the only wealth he finds is in the friendship of Ratso Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), a scrounging, sleazy, small-time con man with big dreams. Living on the tattered fringe of society, these two outcasts develop an unlikely bond - one that transcends their broken dreams and get-rich-quick schemes. Winner of three Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director.

Well known classic
Despite its near legendary status I don't rate it as high as some. To me it's just an interesting movie worth watching.
