The Frisco Kid is, all pratfalls and tuchus jokes aside, the quintessential "Torah "movie.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Absurd Western spoof, that relies almost solely on its ethnic brand of humor to get over.
| Original Score: C+
Aldrich was a man's man director; he could direct black comedy, but he had no idea how to handle the straightforward, earnest brand on display here.
Aldrich's film is a timeless classic with a bevy of super performances.
| Original Score: 3/5
The Frisco Kid made me laugh several times and smile often... I'd say that makes it at least a mildly successful film and a fairly enjoyable one, too.
| Original Score: 7/10
Robert Aldrich's penultimate film is an easygoing work of some considerable charm that relies far too much on ethnic humor to sit quite as comfortably as it might like.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Cute but forgettable Western comedy.
| Original Score: 2/5
Ethnic comedy-western with good Wilder-Ford chemistry
The Frisco Kid works thanks to Gene Wilder's jaunty, sweet and convincing triumph of comic bravado.
Funny, it's not. Sometimes stereotypically offensive, it is.
| Original Score: 2/4
