It's the laziness of the project that's finally most galling.

[Three Amigos is] a goofy delight. It's like a cross between a big-budget Three Stooges movie and a Hope-Crosby road picture, with dozens of old cowpoke gags thrown in to spice up the brew.

While it's occasionally funny, Three Amigos! isn't an entirely fun occasion.

You know it's a boring comedy when you find yourself laughing only at the lead actors' costumes.

The happy-go-lucky Three Amigos is a picture to see when your expectations are down and you've already been to everything that's good.

On the whole there's not a lot of flesh on these cynically haphazard bones.

So sweetly goofy that you can't keep from laughing.

The premise is cute, the characters are endearing, and the wackiness of their predicament in the desert is almost enough to carry the film past dry spells of laughlessness. But the dry spells are frequent.

Landis directed with his customary heavy-handed comedy touch and encouraged his cast to giggle at their own inane shenanigans.

The concept is a funny one, yet no one seems to have the faintest idea of what to do with it.

Full of promise, the film sadly falls flat with corny jokes and clumsy execution.

Spoofy send up of Western films is OK for mature tweens.

What may be unforgivable offenses in other films only bolsters Martin, Short and Chase, three comic geniuses who have made much more out of much less.

A few choice morsels of brilliant humor can't save Three Amigos! from missing the whole enchilada.

An uneven comedy; Short is based, talking about movie insider stuff to the people in the village who have no idea what he is talking about.

If you enjoy brainless slapstick that allows space for irrelvant absurdities like a singing bush and an invisible swordsman, it's entertaining enough.

...a genial hodgepodge of horseplay and saddle-sore jokes.

The slapstick situations and the satire on singing westerns are strictly third rate. We've ridden this trail before and 'Three Amigos' offers nothing new.

Three Amigos is likable, but it never really finds a distinctive style. Not quite parody and not quite serious, it's more like a lengthy costume party.
