Storyline

Two outlaws, The Lonely Rider and the Indian Tonto, have caught (at least they think they have) Speedy Gonzales, a ruthless gunfighter from the town of Njietponimaistadi. They start to travel to another town for the reward, through the desert without water and fighting against Indians. And just to find out that they have made a full circle back to origin.

Brilliantly stupid western parody
20 May 2005 | by (Seinäjoki, Finland) – See all my reviews

Finnish film-critics have always hated this movie, but to many film viewers this is their favourite Spede-movie. Speedy Gonzales lures two wanted outlaws, the Lonely Rider and Tonto the Assistento, to drag themselves into the sheriff's office for a reward. The outlaws don't know that they are wanted, instead they think that Speedy is wanted but reward will only be paid of him as alive. The outlaws are just too stupid to believe that.

Vesa-Matti Loiri plays one of his best roles ever as the Lonely Rider. His character is equally as rough as is stupid. The Lonely Rider makes many mistakes in this movie, but he doesn't care a bit about them - he is too tough to feel anything. His Indian friend Tonto is somewhat more intelligent, but is also very untrustworthy. Speedy does absolutely nothing in this movie, except that makes the journey very difficult.

The movie was almost entirely filmed around one and same sandpit. Speedy actually makes a statement about this fact in the movie. When they finally arrive at the Njetponimaj-stad, Speedy asks the sheriff: "So you mean we have circled the same sandpit for three weeks?" It is a joke in the movie, although they really have also done it.
