Trivia

In the scene where everyone is eating dinner and Sheriff Jackson carves into Josiah's precious table to explain the disappearance of Levi and Jacob. Several table tops were used for different takes to remove the etches Ed Harris created. During the off camera carvings, a basic piece of small flat wood was used so the original table was not damaged. See more »

Goofs

Tucumcari was founded as a railroad town in 1901 as "Ragtown" and was re-named "Tucumcari" in 1908. The story is obviously not set in 1908. See more »

"I apologize for digging you up"
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SWEETWATER is a nicely-done noirish parody of the old spaghetti western. Plot-wise, it's rather predictable, without many big surprises, but it keeps your attention and incorporates steady humor without turning into a complete slapstick joke. Best of all are the very colorful cast of characters: Crazy charlatan cult leader; beautiful, now-married former prostitute who's out to settle down and lead a quiet, simple life; unstable yet nobly maverick sheriff; perverted clothier; and a whole bunch of sheep who contribute a great deal to the story (really, they do).

Intelligently simple entertainment--nothing to be taken too seriously. Great performances by Ed Harris (sheriff) and January Jones (former prostitute).
