Audience Reviews for Texas Across the River

If you haven't seen this...give it a shot, a great comedy western with Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Alain Delon to name a few. I watched this as a kid with my Dad who got such a kick out of the silly spoof-ish humor, and I guess it rubbed off :) It's a cult classic for sure...Priceless!

Ok, ok ok! What kind of reviewer actually takes the time to review Texas Across the River?

Call me whatever, but there was a time, believe it or not, that as a member of the Rat Pack... Dean Martin and Joey Bishop could do ANYTHING in film and get away with it!

I love the title by the way, so this one gets points for at least that. More a period piece of Americana than any great statement in a film. Its sometimes amusing, but not enough.
All about a love triangle where things are resolved in Texas, which is across the river, hence the title.

This light hearted western comedy should never be taken as a serious western... just like Blazing Saddles of its era. This is a very sarcastic look at the west and shows Martin in an element the folks loved at the time. The devil may care attitude in his sylish hit TV show The Dean Martin Show, was carried into this romp through the tumbleweed.

Suggested for immature film watchers everywhere, to screw your head on straight about dry wit comedy. Again, not a serious western at all, good for seeing period filmaking at the time.
