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.
Funny, it's not. Sometimes stereotypically offensive, it is.
Absurd Western spoof, that relies almost solely on its ethnic brand of humor to get over.
| Original Score: C+
Cute but forgettable Western comedy.
| Original Score: 4/5
Aldrich's film is a timeless classic with a bevy of super performances.
| Original Score: 3/5
The Frisco Kid works thanks to Gene Wilder's jaunty, sweet and convincing triumph of comic bravado.
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
The Frisco Kid is, all pratfalls and tuchus jokes aside, the quintessential "Torah "movie.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Ethnic comedy-western with good Wilder-Ford chemistry
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
