Storyline

Ass-breaker Dingus Magee is looking for a gold train when he comes upon old acquaintance Hoke Birdsill on stage to San Francisco, and robs him of his money. Hoke goes to the nearby town of Yerkey's Hole, where Belle Knops is both mayor and bordello-mistress. She appoints Hoke Town Sheriff and tries to get him to stir up the Indians so the soldiers at the nearby fort (the main customers) won't go to Little Big Horn. Dingus tries to stir up more trouble and get involved with the pale, baby-talking Indian, Anna. The film is a send-up of the oft-repeated phrase "the Code of the West" and exaggerates it and what it stands for into the ridiculousness that it is.

John Wesley Hardin: Ain't I seen a poster on you somewhere?
Dingus Billy Magee: Yes sir. The name's Magee - Dingus Magee.
John Wesley Hardin: Oh, that ten dollar outlaw.
Dingus Billy Magee: None but.
John Wesley Hardin: Ha! Ha! Ha! Hell, if I'd known that, I never would have held you up, but I got to steal something from you. Never stop a man for robbing unless you take at least something. That's the Code of the West.

Surprisingly Crass and Vulgar
14 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a series of "blue" gags and poorly written slapstick mixed in with crappy stunts and a nauseating plot. I love Westerns, I love Frank Sinatra. But there's a reason it took him 7 years to appear in another movie - this picture soured everyone on him. We get two unfunny pee scenes, nymph schoolteachers, racist Indian gags, more boob jokes (T. Chest, anyone?), and even an "I got shot in the butt" vignette. Ugh. And Frank Sinatra sounds like a reject from Amos & Andy with the accent he affects. Only Jack Elam lends any real comic effect, or maybe I just think lazy eyes are funny. 96 minutes of this and you'll be wishing you were watching Seargents 3 or 4 For Texas. This movie fails on all accounts.
