All great farces need a certain insane focus, an intensity that declares how important they are to themselves. This movie is too confident, too relaxed, too clever to be really funny.

A few choice morsels of brilliant humor can't save Three Amigos! from missing the whole enchilada.

The slapstick situations and the satire on singing westerns are strictly third rate. We've ridden this trail before and 'Three Amigos' offers nothing new.

While it's occasionally funny, Three Amigos! isn't an entirely fun occasion.

...a genial hodgepodge of horseplay and saddle-sore jokes.

The script of Three Amigos plays like it was slapped together by a few friends with a tape recorder enjoying a charming weekend at the beach.

It's a calamity of a comedy, the perfect complement to concession-stand nachos con cheez.

Three Amigos is likable, but it never really finds a distinctive style. Not quite parody and not quite serious, it's more like a lengthy costume party.

On the whole there's not a lot of flesh on these cynically haphazard bones.

The happy-go-lucky Three Amigos is a picture to see when your expectations are down and you've already been to everything that's good.

You know it's a boring comedy when you find yourself laughing only at the lead actors' costumes.

It's the laziness of the project that's finally most galling.

Full of promise, the film sadly falls flat with corny jokes and clumsy execution.

The concept is a funny one, yet no one seems to have the faintest idea of what to do with it.

Landis directed with his customary heavy-handed comedy touch and encouraged his cast to giggle at their own inane shenanigans.

[Three Amigos is] a goofy delight. It's like a cross between a big-budget Three Stooges movie and a Hope-Crosby road picture, with dozens of old cowpoke gags thrown in to spice up the brew.
