A disaster!
24 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the Ritz Brothers, but this film is horrible. It starts out fine and progresses to a point where Harry Ritz is about to become the sheriff of a western town. Then it all falls apart. There are a group of poor musical numbers and the brothers don't even get a good musical feature. The film never resolves. It just stops. The ending is a little hard to stomach. I guess Universal could not put any care into this Ritz vehicle. They were much too busy with Abbott and Costello.
