Goofs

At the start of the movie, when the woman is being used as a shield, the closeup of Sheriff Biggs pistol shows no bullets in the chambers, but after she yells for him to shoot, the next closeup shows one shell, a hollow point, in the cylinder. Hollow points had not been invented at the time. See more »

There Go The Brides
17 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Probably the most famous big screen film about mail order brides is the MGM classic Westward The Women starring Robert Taylor who brought a wagon train of brides to a new western settlement. Well some marriages don't work out and in Prarie Fever Kevin Sorbo gets to return some of the brides. Sorbo gets a job to deliver Dominique Swain, Jillian Armenante, and Felicia Day back to whence they came.

Sorbo's an ex-sheriff who took to drink when he killed his own wife who was being held hostage by a bad guy. This is the only job he can get. But being an ex-sheriff he still has enemies like Don Swayze and Blake Gibbons who are looking to gun him down for the prison sentence they served courtesy of Kevin arresting them.

He's also got along for the ride Jamie Anne Allman who is fleeing her gambler husband Lance Henriksen. That proves to be the most troublesome of all.

The women seem to be suffering from some kind of psychotic breakdowns which is called Prarie Fever. The average person seems to think it's a bad adjustment to frontier life. But as we meet the women and hear their individual stories they've been stuck with some real losers for husbands.

Prarie Fever is a pleasant enough western with Kevin Sorbo showing he can play more than Hercules.
