Goofs

Julian fires a warning shot into Slade's belly, then he walks away. When the camera cuts to a close view from Slade's hip, you can see Julian quickly turn around moments before Slade reaches for his gun, too soon for this shot, as though he'd heard Slade pull his gun. See more »

Quotes

River Townsman: Ma'am, you people are crazy!
Belle: Crazy? What do you mean, crazy? Because we risked out lives crossing a river instead of staying on the other side? Because we have faith in ourselves? Because we believe in a wagonmaster who gave us the courage and the confidence to do things we never thought we could have done?
River Townsman: No, because most people use the bridge.

Very Funny
25 January 2001 | by eckhouse24See all my reviews

This film is better then one thinks. Some of it is slapstick, some dry humor, and some just plain old physical comedy. Charles Rocket is hilarious in his brief moments on the screen, and Richard Lewis has never been funnier. John Candy will be missed, and it is sad that this was his last film, but at least he gave us one great laugh. All in all, I think this is an 8, reason being is that I don't see this being a great film, but it is sure entertaining.
