Cute!
12 December 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

This made for TV Pilot movie did well I say. Here you got a descendant of a legendary gunman Wyatt Earp III(Chad Everett) his dim-witted brother Evan(Jim Varney, "Ernest P. Worrell" 1949-2000) and the rest of the gang. They live on a carnival run by Jack Slade(Hoyt Axton, 1938-99), they fight crime, they help out people, but don't ever, EVER, mess with an Earp! I liked the chase scenes, the shoot-em ups, and the all the comedy that this movie's got. I liked the part where Amanda(Maxine Stuart) pops the guy upside his head with a frying pan. And I liked the part where Evan and Wyatt was taking out the bad guys at night. When Evan bought those $15 guns, one gun lasted on two bullets: One shot fired regularly, the second shot resulted in explosion. Note to Evan: Never buy guns that cheap! Then the fun part began when the bad guys gets the engine shot, the car goes into a fireball. A fun ride, too bad the show didn't last long enough. I liked it!
