Trivia

The name of the village is spelled and pronounced as Santa Poco in the movie and soundtrack. This is grammatically incorrect, as "santa" is a feminine word and "Poco" is masculine, and since in Spanish the genders should match, the proper spelling is Santo Poco, though San Poco would actually be the correct form used in Mexican Spanish, due to other conventional rules regarding the letters with which a name begins.

"Together, we raped the Horses and rode-off on the Women"
16 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the level of humour you'll find throughout the movie.

It's an ironic twist on the Western cliché with a story based on The Magnificent Seven.

The recently out-of-work 3 Movie-Stars are unwittingly employed as bona-fide gun-slingers. They find themselves out-numbered 5:1 by the infamous ("More than Famous, He's In-Famous!"), El Guapo (Alfonso Arau) and his Banditos.

This impossible situation is soon turned around by quick thinking (Girl A:"I like the one who is not so clever". Girl B:"Which one is that?") and lots of sewing... yes, I said "sewing"!

If you listen to this movie closely, you'll pick-up on a lot of humour that would otherwise be lost.
