One Take Malarky
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never really got into westerns (at least these low budget ones) but I did cut my teeth on the Lone Ranger and the Cisco Kid. There always seemed to be such a sameness about them. As I watched this film, I was lulled into indifference. I never realized how odd these things could look. For some reason, there are a bunch of kids who ride around with flower pots on their heads. There are aliens trying to take over the earth. Gene has only one concern and that is that he get to sing on his radio show or he will lose his contract. Everything is thrown together. The aliens prove ineffectual as do the bad guys. The thing I noticed is that everything is done in a single take. If a character has trouble getting on his horse, they go on with him flopped over the saddle. If someone trips on a rock, he just keeps on going, though he looks silly. This is just a disjointed mess, but must have been made for about ten bucks. I always found these singing cowboys a little hard to take. Roy Rogers was a lot smoother, but it was more of the same. Anyway, a Western with aliens. I guess we could expect about anything.
