"Lust" is a bust!
10 July 2003 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

With all that talent in front of and behind the camera, it's shocking how dismal the end result is. Most of the blame goes to the rotten script, which is not only unfunny, but has almost no plot; the characters keep screaming and running around to try to hide the fact nothing is really going on, but it doesn't work. Though the fact that the direction delivers everything (not just the "comedy") in such a heavy-handed way shares some of the guilt as well. The only thing somewhat humorous is the song that's played in the opening and closing credits. If you want to see a FUNNY western spoof, see "Rustlers' Rhapsody" or "Evil Roy Slade".
