Not Quite Saludos Amigos
2 May 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This early effort by directorial jack-of-all-trades Richard Thorpe quickly shows its stripes as a musical-comedy western -- it opens with the Mexican army captain leading his cavalry in a cantering chorus that works very nicely.

This is a western with a little bit of something for everyone, including a clip of Rex the Wonder Horse and Ladies' Day at the swimming hole. The songs are surprisingly fresh, Babe Kane is very funny as the distaff comic side kick, and there is pretty good camerawork, particularly in the dance scene. While not for everyone -- the stereotypes are hard to take if you forget for a moment this is a farce -- if you have any taste at all for this sort of thing, you will find it enormously entertaining.
