* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Macleane obviously. However Plunkett has his a different appeal. Rochester calls him a "delicious bit of rough," and after Plunkett's honourable performance during [[spoiler: the duel with Chance]], news of his bravery (and his visible injury) lead to some marked interest from a few of the ladies in Macleane's acquaintance.

''Plunkett & Macleane'' is a historical action comedy, released in 1999. The titular characters are based very, [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory very loosely]] on real life [[TheHighwayman highway men]] William Plunkett and James Macleane. The story itself pretty much nothing to do with them.
