For "grown ups", if not all "adults"., 2 August 2000
Author: scripto ( from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

A truly funny, gentle, intelligent movie. A rare cinematic experience, in that the surprise ending doesn't leave one feeling manipulated. Slim Pickens' performance was on a par with his work in Dr. Strangelove. A great "western" for those who,like myself, don't particularly like "westerns".
