"Il Mio nome è Nessuno" might be one of the most lavished comedies ever. It isn't just funny, it has a interesting plot and is overall ambitious. Even if it isn't Sergio Leone's best film, it is a film with a personal touch (a thing you can find in most of Leone's work).
Terence Hill was funny in the Trinity-movies, here he has another but maybe similar role. Nobody is not as charming as Trinity, but is still one of the big, colorful Leone-characters. Try not mix up "Il Mio nome è Nessuno" with the Trinity-movies, it is different, more clever and less straight forward (I like those films as well).
Henry Fonda ... wow. He is just great. Even here. And what about Ennio Morricone's score? Superb might be the right word.
Do not think of this film as some crap, if you do so, you are way wrong and might be positively surprised.
