Storyline

Marshal Flagg, an aging lawman about to be retired, hears that his old nemesis, the outlaw McKaye, is back in the area and planning a robbery. Riding out to hunt down McKaye, Flagg is captured by McKaye's gang and finds out that McKaye is no longer the leader of the gang, but is considered just an aging relic by the new leader, a youngster named Waco. Waco orders Mackaye to shoot Flagg, and when Mackaye refuses Waco abandons both of them. Flagg then takes Mackaye back to town only to find out that he has been "retired", and when he sees how clueless and incompetent the new marshal and the city fathers are, he persuades Mackaye that it is up to the two of them to stop Waco and his gang from ravaging the town.

Trivia

Burt Kennedy:  ["Fight!"]  At the beginning of the fight scene, someone (in this case, an uncredited Richard Farnsworth) looks directly at the camera and yells, "Fight!" See more »

Goofs

When the car is left on the tracks, and the train hits it and breaks it apart, as it flies apart it is clearly just painted wooden sections fastened together on a frame to look like a car. There is no engine or drive train or interior, no seats or glass, and the wooden pieces can clearly be seen. See more »

Quotes

Flagg: You gave me your word not to try anything, and the minute I turned my back you almost took my head off.
McKay: I didn't give you my word - I gave you my promise.
Flagg: It's the same thing!
McKay: No it ain't - one's my promise, and the other's my word!

For Those Who Like To Have Fun!
11 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If your westerns Must be more along the lines of The Unforgiving or High Plains Drifter then The Good Guys and the Bad Guys is not for you.

But if you Love westerns like Support Your Local Sheriff and Silverado then you will love this movie!

The Good Guys and the Bad Guys is just plain old Fun! Robert Mitchum and George Kennedy are great together. Martin Balsam's Mayor is like an earlier version of Mel Brook's The Governor in Blazing Saddles.

Why the don't make westerns like this anymore is beyond me. But then again why they don't make westerns at all is really beyond me.

Whenever I come across this movie on TV I stop to watch it. You cant go wrong with The Good Guys and the Bad Guys :) .
