A couple of two-bit thieving brothers try and keep a promise to their dying father: stick together and become successful outlaws. Bambino reluctantly agrees to show younger Trinity the ropes, but their gentle demeanors tend to diminish their haul by repeatedly helping the selfsame family they initially held up. Fun ensues in town and at the local Spanish mission where they are taken for federal agents, mistakenly so identified by Trinity's young love interest, daughter of the aforementioned family.

A review from someone who isn't really a fan of Westerns
I don't know, maybe it's that I didn't grow up with them, the way others have, the fact that I'm not American, or a variety of factors, but I've never been much for the classic Westerns. As with films regarding historic events, and films further back than a few decades, Westerns are something that I just don't make it a point to watch unless there's something special about it, someone talented at the helm or a major significance to that particular production. I watched this years ago, and I must admit that I didn't pay that much attention on this most recent viewing. It's just not really my genre. Some of the situations, action and dialog are admittedly good in some of these films, though. Technically speaking, this is good. Camera, editing and sound are fine. The fights look convincing enough, it does look as if the punches connect(though I wouldn't guess that they actually did). At one point in the film, an unusual and unexpected group dish out some physical violence. One fight plays a lot like a football game. The humor includes some repeated gags and jokes, and one running toilet humor joke. The dialog has its moments. I recommend this to fans of Westerns and comedies set in the Wild West. 7/10
