Worth a try
11 May 2005 | by (Sofia, Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Heh. A dumb western with a plot. So cartoonish and dumb characters you haven't seen since Beavis and Butthead. Sometimes it is so dumb it becomes to be funny. But humor is a way overdosed. Maybe it was meant to be a parody but they just put too much salt on it. Worth a try especially when you have nothing else to do, and I get cold lying in bed. Well something more. I wish I could met this Missy around :) And to speak with that immortal man with 18 open wounds ... Well that's life. It was not meant to be taken seriously. To the IMDb owners - do you REALLY think that all movies NEEDS to be reviewed in _TEN_ lines? In some cases, two lines are more than enough ...
