Great, fun western comedy. Gossett steals the show...
Wonderfully fun film that sometimes takes itself seriously, but mostly just has a lot of fun with the genre. Anthony Edwards is very well cast in his part, and Gossett is just fabulous as the "rode hard" old gunslinger who tries to turn Edwards into a western hero...sort of.

Whether you like westerns or not, this is definitely worth watching. And probably more than once.
