Over The Top Humor
4 May 2005 | by skallisjrSee all my reviews

This is a silly film, deliberately so. I saw this as The Square Shooter, its alternate title. I suspect the original title was chosen because of the popularity of Hopalong Cassidy when it was made.

The film is set in the Old West, and many clichés of numerous Westerns are lampooned in the film. There are chases, fights, and the like, but taken to impossible extremes. In the serious Westerns of the period, many of the fights looked staged; this carries fighting to an extreme.

This film is very effective in the tradition of slapstick comedy. It has no depth, but doesn't need any. Although I'm phasing over to DVDs, I'd snap up a VHS copy if I ran across one.
