The jokes here sound a lot funnier than they play.

The jokes tend to be watered-down versions of the tasteless kind that enlivened the Naked Gun movies and the early films of Mel Brooks.

Although a comedy rife in lively characters, Wagons East! affords star John Candy one of the poorest, drabest, and thoroughly unfunniest roles of his career.

Everyone's creative burners were on low heat for this woeful outing.

A stridently unfunny western comedy that is equally lame in its writing and direction.

Wagons East! has the distinction of being Candy's final film, and it is dedicated to his memory. That, unfortunately, is its only distinction.

A sunshiney hodgepodge of bad jokes, nice scenery and reverse stereotypes.

The humour is sufficiently scattershot to hit the mark once or twice, but basically a no-brains comedy.

There's little to praise in Peter Markle's handling of Matthew Carlson's heavy-handed screenplay.
Top Critic

A ghastly western parody that does not honor Uncle Buck's memory, but exploits his last, pitiable appeal for laughter.
