A really funny western.
17 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the funniest spoofs on westerns that I've seen. Cesar Romero and Richard Widmark do an outstanding job playing characters who are exaggerated versions of a worried father and a cowboy. Because of the "time frame" it occurs in, it is probably appreciated more by "seniors" who grew up with westerns of all kinds than it would be by younger generations who are more used to "modern" westerns - i.e. Starwars. Nothing in the movie is serious and like "Texas Across the River" and "Rustlers Rhapsody" it has a lot of laughs in it. It is definitely a "laugh out loud" movie and if I could find a copy of it I would purchase it for myself.
