Storyline

Dan and Doc are incompetent desperados who plan to give crime one more try before going straight. Miss Amity Babb is the shapely toast of Empty Cup, Colorado who sets prices by Wall Street, never loses at poker, and rules the town (and the sheriff) with a cash register in a velvet glove. When Amity and our two heroes meet, the slapstick burlesque of Western cliches grows ever wilder... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

best movie
9 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie and there was only two movies of this kind with these actors and I wish they were on disc. There wasn't enough movies made with these two people. They were the greatest. Dan Rowan and Dick Martin should be immortalized for the two movies they did plus Laugh In. This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Remember the scene "Have you ever heard cattle?" This is a classic. "The Maltese Bippy" was the other movie and you can't get either one on VHS or disc. I cannot forget the remarks that Dick Martin says as come backs to Dan's remarks. The beer drinking, Dan gets a shot of whiskey and Dick gets five beers for the same price and just drinks them down. It's a chore trying to write this much just to make a comment.
