Early in the trip the coach driver and the sheriff take turns with the reins long enough for each to remove his coat. The sun is getting brighter and the idea is conveyed that it is getting warmer. Then, there is a scene, maybe when they pick up Ringo, when their coats are on their bodies again. However, immediately after that their coats are once more off. See more »

Buck: Yeah, I know it. She used to ride shotgun for me. Then she said it got, uh, got too hard on her ovaries.
Marshal Curly Wilcox: [pauses] What's an ovary?

doesn't hold a candle to the John Ford/John Wayne original
19 March 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

this is(a far as i can tell)the third version of the classic movie first directed in 1939 by John Ford and starring John Wayne.i haven't seen the second film(1966)so i can't comment on that one.this 1986 version though,i can comment my mind,it doesn't come near to the original,which is a classic,and one of the best movies i have seen.this version has in many of the starring roles,Country and western singers of the era,including Willie Nelson,Waylon Jennings,Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson.also in the cast are John Schneider(TV's Dukes of Hazard),June Carter Cash,Jessi Colter(wife of Waylon Jennings),and Mary Crosby(TV's Dallas)the movie was an entertaining diversion,but the acting was underwhelming.The only decent performance of the bunch came from Kristofferson.most of the dialogue wasn't that great,either,including a lot of one or two word conversations.and what was up with Mary Crosby and those lips,which looked like she'd had an allergic reaction to peanuts or shellfish,or something.either way,it looked stupid.the movie was also slow,with not much happening of any consequence,and almost zero character development.when it was over,i was indifferent to's nothing memorable and will probably have faded from my mind in a day or so.still,if you have nothing better to do,it passes about 90 minutes or so.for me Stagecoach(1986)is a 6/10
