As my title suggests, I couldn't disagree more with the previous poster. It's entirely possible that the reviewer confused this picture with the previous Trinity outing, "They Call Me Trinity", which does not compare to the sequel whatsoever. With "Trinity is Still My Name" they were firing on all four cylinders. This film is the quintessential parody of the spaghetti western, with some of the dirtiest, filthiest ant-heroes ever depicted. When this film was in its original theatrical run in the early 70's, it created a *huge* stir...young and old came unglued equally over the many "over-the-top" versions of the classic western scene. The slapstick gags were spot on, and Terrence Hill moves from scene to scene with a rogue-ish charm that breathes life into the character of Trinity. Bud Spence's understated performance rounds out the cast, and his lethargic, deadpan delivery mixes well with Hill's enthusiasm. The two actors teamed in several films, but this would be their best work.
The film is highly visual, and Trinity himself is an extremely humorous character with his use of many outlandish contraptions such as the lounge-chair saddle.
The supporting cast also provide a good bit of the humor throughout. Characters such as the family with the "windy" baby, and the one bad guy who loses his mind after receiving one of Bambino's massive head blows come to mind. Scene after scene parodies many of the classic western clichés, from card games to gunfights, all including the trademark Trinity "twist".
This film is definitely not academy award material whatsoever, but if you're looking for good slapstick fun with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor you won't be disappointed.
