Nun Sara is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan, who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Set in Mexico, a nun called Sara is rescued from three cowboys by Hogan, who is on his way to do some reconnaissance, for a future mission to capture a French fort. The French are chasing Sara, but not for the reasons she tells Hogan, so he decides to help her in return for information about the fort defences. Inevitably the two become good friends but Sara has a secret.. Written by
The film's title is actually a pun. Sara's initial transportation is a mule, that becomes lame, and she trades it for a younger and smaller donkey - which is not technically a mule. So, the second "mule" of the title may be Hogan, whom Sara says "You're as stubborn as my mule." Later, she calls Hogan, "Mr. Mule". See more »
In the train trestle scene, in the moments prior to the dynamite explosion and resulting crash of the train, there are no wires/cables visible above the trestle. But when the train is seen approaching, wires or cables are clearly visible overhead. See more »

Look at that! Look at it!

This movie was definitely worth seeing. I only heard of it once on this site for a Shirley MacLaine movie, but when I saw it in the store, I immediately baught it. Then I came home and watched it, and I LOVED IT! The scenes are both funny and somewhat heart-warming at the same time (if you consider "Sober up! You better sober up you b*****d or I'm going to kill you!" heartwarming.) Clint Eastwood was terrific as the "no good Atheist" drunk cowbody and Shirley MacLaine was even better as the "nun gone wrong". I highly recommend this movie to those who want to laugh and admire the romance. A perfect 10.
