Aldrich's trademark violence bursts through only sporadically; otherwise the film comes across as a lazy, party-time effort for the stars.

Combustible Celluloid

A stupid and overlong Rat Pack sex comedy Western that bites the dust with hardly any intentional laughs.

No singing, no dancing, just Frank and Dean in the old west drinking whiskey and banging beautiful ladies. The great surprise of this western was that Charles Bronson was the villian. Of course though even at his toughest he is no match for Frank and Dean.
