Cute little tale
27 August 2001 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

I don't know why no one has commented on this cute little flick about a bouncer at a circus Wyatt Earp III (Chad Everett) grandson of the original legendary Wyatt Earp, his feisty mother (Mimi Rogers) and his dim witted brother, Evan (Jim Varney). This has a little bit of every thing, all tongue in cheek fun, car chase with exploding car, armored car robbers, a helpful lion, yes lion, rescuing an abused woman from her very nasty boyfriend, a blazing shoot out with the robbers with Wyatt using a Buntline Special (replica of course) and believe it or not, it all ties together quite nicely. This is one of those movies for a quiet evening when you just want a humorous easy going flick with no profanity, sex scenes or the like. I enjoyed it! 6 stars out of 10.
