Pretty bad, 6 July 2006
1/10

I don't know what is meant by a "spoiler," so I hope my review of this as one of the worst movies ever does not count as one. About fifteen years ago my wife and I saw this movie. We were attracted by the cast, figuring that with such a cast it would have had to have been a good movie. Guess what, the planets probably lined up in such a way that the best of casts could make a stinker of a movie. After all, even the 1927 Yankees lost a few games. Given your choice of putting this tape or DVD in your player or watching a test pattern on the TV you should pick the test pattern. The characters, as I remember, are not at all real. The situations are impossible.

hilarious film, just like Roadrunner, 10 July 2004

Almost like a Roadrunner cartoon, but live action. Pretty much all the clichés you can think of, including names such as "Handsome Stranger" for the handsome stranger played by Ah-nold, and "Charming" for the beautiful heroine.

Frankly, IMHO, Kirk Douglas's horse was the star of the movie. While watching it with friends I said, "I love that horse." I think that animal should have won an Academy Award. (I think there is a "Patsy" award for animals, actually)

Probably best to see this one with friends. Probably pretty boring to see it alone, but where friends can feed upon each other it is wonderful.

None of Kirk Douglas's implements did come from the ACME company, though :-)
