One of the flattest cowboy spoofs to mosey on down the trail in a long while.

I found almost nothing funny about this film. Palance's performance saved it.

Simplistic look at mid-life male wackiness, but the cast saves it with little effort.

It goes downhill once Jack Palance exits, but the early scenes are still worth it.

Thankfully, Crystal is more than willing to hog the screen with his whining, impressions, and glorious chemistry with Palance, whose entire performance is based around inconsistent levels of exhaling.

A fun outing, with Jack Palance's Oscar-winning performance the main attraction.
