Quotes

The Preacher: We are committing this man, Mr. Jones... ah... Mr. Shones, to his life in the hereafter. We would like to take a moment to acknowledge his contributions to our community. During Mr. Shones' short-lived term as Sheriff, he served the public to the best of his abilities. He shot eight men and three women, most of whom were engaged in breaking the law. I'm sure the others were honest mistakes.

appealing comedy-western
5 February 2001 | by (SW Florida) – See all my reviews

A very appealing comedy western. Anthony Edwards is very good as a tenderfoot schoolteacher from Boston who attempts to rescue one of his students (who is captured by the infamous El Diablo) without really knowing anything about the West or what his quest is going to entail. Luckily he meets up with a down-to-earth gunman who can help him along the way. Lou Gosset is excellent as the laidback, do whatever it takes gunfighter. When asked by Edwards why he shot a bad guy in the back he replies "Why, his back was to me." They meet up with a few other colorful characters and proceed to attempt the rescue. Good humor, good acting and colorful characterizations abound in this above average made for TV oater.
