a work of pure comic genius
26 September 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Every actor perfectly cast, every line perfectly inflected, this was a work of pure comic genius that draws on all the stock cast of characters found in western novels and movies from the dawn of the genre. Great fun.
