Unique, hilarious Western
30 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Eugene Levy and John Hemphill, "SCTV" and "Maniac Mansion" veterans, take those shows' unique, droll humour and superimpose it on a classic Western storyline, and the result is spectacular. Hemphill and George Buza are hilarious as part of a hyper-Tarantinesque group of nefarious armchair proto-pop-philosophers trying to force several families off their land. Fred Willard is at his best as the dim-witted homesteader who stands in their way, gleefully unaware that his hired hand (Kris Kristofferson) is being openly pursued by his lascivious wife (very memorably played by Wendel Meldrum).

This type of humour works brilliantly in TV series, but experiences mild growing pains being transferred to feature length -- this movie does drag in spots. But it's still hilarious thanks to the great writing and performances, and is definitely recommended to all fans of this sort of drollery, and to anyone looking for a radically, refreshingly different take on the Wild West.
