The problem with this film is that it tried so hard to be funny with some really stupid slap-stick routines that just seemed out-of-place for such a fine cast. Doris Day was not really that bad playing the lead in her charming ways. And even Peter Graves did better than expected as he was cast next to the beautiful Ms Day. The movie was more about comedy than a western -making this somewhat better had it be placed in more modern times than dirty and dusty west. Even from the beginning with the modern song that introduced the title characters, the viewer had a feeling that this was not going to be pretty. This movie tried to be a western but with its fancy talk and high priced wardrobes it just had a feel of being unbelievable. Which leads us to the biggest problem with this film- not believable.
The plot, the writing, the situations, the comedy, the drama and the look of this movie all seem to be wrong. And all these factor usually make for a disaster of a show. But the fine actors is what saves this movie from being an all-out wreck. This is not a movie that I would want to watch again but would recommend watching just to see the many fine actors. Just did not have the combination or interest for a good film.
