It is stated that "Diamond" Jim Brady is promoting a big boxing match between "Gentleman" Jim Corbett and John L. Sullivan. Corbett fought Sullivan, but in 1892. The events depicted in the film happened in two entirely different eras. See more »

A Treat for the Whole Family
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kenny Rogers has done it again. I found this to be an enjoyable film that pays homage to just about every western in the history of American television. Be sure to pay close attention to Paul Brinegar as "Cookie" when he does his monologue. You may remember him from "Rawhide" when he played Wishbone. It's a hoot and a holler. I had to go back and play that part again because it was so funny. I'm glad he lived long enough to appear in this film. That monologue had me rolling on the floor with laughter. Sit back and enjoy seeing some of your favorite western TV stars as they appear here in their respective roles. Reba is delightful here as the leading lady.
