Having to wait until this feature came out on DVD was no disappointment, just be prepared to read subtitles - which is OK with me.
Being quite familiar with some of the idiosyncrasies of Turkish life from a foreigners view, I had a blast watching this collaborative production mix some of the finer points of the old west with the comedic lifestyle of a few Ottoman Turks making their first diplomatic trek to the Wild West.
As always, I enjoy the humor of Cem Yilmaz, but in order to really enjoy this film, one has to be quite familiar with the 'finer points' of living amongst our Turkish brethren it's the little things that mean a lot.
'Chuck!' You know what I mean...
