Cataclysmic failure
11 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In three of the film's outtakes, shown during the end credits, Hasselholf playfully bemoans his presence. I have to wonder if he was really kidding, as this horrendous comedy must bring nothing to his stature as a worldwide celeb during the heyday of Baywatch. He plays "Clint", a bumbling cowboy performing for kids who teams up with a Canadian Indian lawyer (Gordon Tootoosis) after both are suspected of robbing a bingo parlor. They're in turn chased by a bumbling, belching, farting, and vomiting drunken cop played by the usually great Michael Moriarty, who looks shockingly bad here. I can forgive him if he's actually needed several drinks to get through this picture. Add Brits with bad accents and a trailer home filled with oversexed cackling old women and a lousy ventriloquist, and you have the makings of a movie that will require a will of steel to watch. For those of you guys who are hoping for some bikini-clad T&A, you're out of luck. This movie was made in Alberta, Canada--significantly colder than the California beaches. However, those of you who want to see a middle-aged woman hogtied (cue exasperated groaning sounds)... The screener DVD I watched was titled "Cowboys Run" with "Thomas Leigh" credited as director on the DVD case and "Alan Smithee" on the film itself, proving Mr. Leigh possesses great wisdom. One more comment: although no animals were harmed during filming, this movie has a bizarre obsession with hurting animals as a running gag. I suppose those who really find this sort of mistreatment funny can grab this movie along with "Mondo Cane" and split their sides laughing.
