The true story of a recently widowered lawman who befriends a boy dying of tuberculosis and a madam of the local brothel while their town is being politically and violently overtaken by a gang of reckless cattlemen from Texas.
Burnt out lawman Mike McCluskie is forced to protect his town as the deepening divide is growing between the Ohio Railroad Workers and the Texas Cattle Men who are terrorizing the citizens of Hyde Park. Based on real events, McCluskie calls on the support of the local brothel owner Rosie and James Riley, a young vagrant dying of tuberculosis, who collectively, transform Hyde Park into one of the bloodiest and violent places in America.

I really don't know why this film has such a low rating, I think a lot of it may be people taking it as a serious western instead of just appreciating it as a silly movie that is genuinely hilarious. C. Thomas Howell is brilliant in it as is The Stranger.
All in All it is a good movie, I swear!
