"Shane" Takeoff Pretty Funny
9 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This caught me by surprise being much better than I anticipated and a very likable film. Yes, it had its liberal bias but the comedy was consistent, the profanity low (it was a made-for-TV film) and the story very interesting.

It was a takeoff on "Shane" with Kris Kristofferson plays the low-key gunman (Alan Ladd's role in "Shane.") Fred Willard is the farmer who stands up to the local land-grabbing bully (John Vernon, who played a lot of villains in his day). It's nicely filmed, too. I didn't know it was out on DVD until I just checked this IMDb page, and perhaps I'll pick it up.

Wendel Medrum is a pretty woman whom I have never seen before or since. Even though this was a TV movie, I would not recommend it as "family viewing" with the sexual innuendos, gay guys, an adulterous wife, etc.

All in all, a fun movie that exceeds expectations.
