Pitiful!
11 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sorry, folks - if you have a relative who was involved in this awful flick, you should avoid my comments - because you won't be happy with my review.

This was awful in every way. The characters are hollow, the plot is hopeless, and the "comic" moments are painful.

The storyline involves winning a race and saving the ranch for Grandma. Examples of the implausible and unfunny sketches: two folks use a wolf howl as a signal, and a real wolf's howl confuses their signaling. The sheriff must

secretly check Joe for a tattoo, but he has to get Joe to take his shirt off to peek, and Joe is ticklish. Get the picture?

If you are still contemplating trying this one, I suggest you choose acupuncture using railroad spikes, instead.
