I was 7 when this film came out and I though it was funny and had a clever plot.
Im a huge fan of Landis and love most of his films.
I watched this film last night for the first time since around 1989 and I can say this has to be the worst film Ive ever seen along with Spies Like Us.
Avoid with all cost and get American Werewolf instead. Or Trading Places. Or Coming To America. Or any other Landis film.
This film is actually quite good, when i saw this film, i wasnt sure but i thought i would give it a try as it has some good actors in and it was actually good
For fans of steve martin, this is a must see film
Wherever there is unjustice you will find us, wherever there is suffering we'll be there, wherever liberty is threatened you will find...three blokes acting the fool in spangly costumes. But they do it with such finesse! This film is genius from start to finish with more visual gags than you can shake a singing bush at. The premise; three goofball has been wild west actors are mistaken for the real thing and are commisioned to scare off the bandits who are threatening a small village out in the desert. Enter Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short and couple them with the comedic ingenuity of the director John Landis and you have a sure fire winner. Why more people don't love this film is beyond my comprehension, it is simply daft as a brush fun. Embrace the silliness and forever Amigo's we'll beeeeeeeeeee.
