good TV western
5 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie a couple of times on TV and thought this movie was very good. Good TV western. The actors play their parts well. Kevin Sorbo plays an alcoholic ex sheriff that needs to make some money quick, so he agrees to take 3 'crazy' women, who were mail-order brides that got the "prairie fever" to the train station. He also meets up with another woman (a card shark) who is running from her husband. Their adventure has a little romance, a little gun action, a little comedy, a little tragedy, and a couple of small twists. I don't like too many westerns, but this one is good. Fun movie for a rainy afternoon.
