Three generations of Keatons are featured, from Joseph the elder to Buster's own son, while the period detail is at once comic and -- believe it -- totally accurate.

The Keatons, four of them, combine to make this picture highly hilarious.

This is an unusual comedy picture, a novelty melange of dramatics, low comedy, laughs and thrills. Jean Havez has built up a comedy masterpiece about as serious a subject as a feud.

Buster's climactic rescue of his sweetheart from a waterfall is one of his most daringly acrobatic (and most celebrated) gags.

Keaton's first feature-length comedy is one of his best, a comic gem set against a backdrop of a Hatfield-McCoy style family feud.

Keaton is at his dour best here, playing his usual "everyman" who sticks his chin out and resolutely attempts to prevail over life's circumstances.

[Contains] one of Keaton's most spectacular and breathtaking stunts.

TV Guide's Movie Guide
October 30, 2001
A marvelous example of Keaton's ability to mine laughs from an essentially serious situation (blood feuds and assassination attempts) while at the same time spoofing the melodramatic pretensions of the genre (Southern customs, codes of honor, etc).

With this work, Keaton began to display a dramatic sense to complement his comic sensibility -- like The General, it is built with the integrity of a high-adventure story.

This isn't one of [Keaton's] best, despite some amusing scenes.
