Trivia

After post production of the film, Warner Bros. had already given up on the film, considering it the "black sheep of the family". The film / concept, being so bad that nobody on the staff in the Quality Control Department wanted to work on it. Begrudgingly, they did. See more »

What a waste

I never saw the original TV show, so I can't compare, and I'm willing to concede a comic-Western-meets-James Bond-type show could work, but I know this much; this movie doesn't work. The story drags on too long, the so-called gags are lame, some fine comedic actors are left twisting in the wind(only Branagh held my interest for awhile, and I even got tired of him), and it's hard to believe Barry Sonnenfeld, who made the ADDAMS FAMILY movies and MEN IN BLACK so entertaining(not to mention GET SHORTY) could make a stinker like this. Some nice photography by Michael Ballhaus, but that's it.
