TV Guide's Movie Guide

Not a hit at the box office, it remains one of his finest efforts, funny, touching and never mawkishly sentimental.

Peckinpah shows atypical humor and sense of music too in this original and lyrical comedy-Western-musical, with Jason Robards in top form as one of the director's most sympathetic character.

A fine movie, a wonderfully comic tale we didn't quite expect from a director who seems more at home with violence than with humor.

Austin Chronicle

Jason Robards shines in one of his most touching and humorous performances, and David Warner is memorable as a sinning preacher man.

Sam Peckinpah followed The Wild Bunch with this intimate, eccentric, appealing 1970 comedy, which treats many of the same themes in a soft, regretful mode.
