Trivia

In the scene where Sheriff Jackson (played by Ed Harris) shoots Kingfisher (played by Luce Rains) in the hand after roughing him up at the sheriffs office, Ed Harris accidentally fired a shot very near to Luce Rains face during one of the takes. Rains was not injured since the guns were props and were only loaded with blanks. See more »

Goofs

Tucumcari was founded as a railroad town in 1901 as "Ragtown" and was re-named "Tucumcari" in 1908. The story is obviously not set in 1908. See more »

"I apologize for digging you up"
4 January 2014 | by doug_park2001See all my reviews

SWEETWATER is a nicely-done noirish parody of the old spaghetti western. Plot-wise, it's rather predictable, without many big surprises, but it keeps your attention and incorporates steady humor without turning into a complete slapstick joke. Best of all are the very colorful cast of characters: Crazy charlatan cult leader; beautiful, now-married former prostitute who's out to settle down and lead a quiet, simple life; unstable yet nobly maverick sheriff; perverted clothier; and a whole bunch of sheep who contribute a great deal to the story (really, they do).

Intelligently simple entertainment--nothing to be taken too seriously. Great performances by Ed Harris (sheriff) and January Jones (former prostitute).
