The Frisco Kid is, all pratfalls and tuchus jokes aside, the quintessential "Torah "movie.

Aldrich's film is a timeless classic with a bevy of super performances.

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.

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.

The Frisco Kid works thanks to Gene Wilder's jaunty, sweet and convincing triumph of comic bravado.

Absurd Western spoof, that relies almost solely on its ethnic brand of humor to get over.

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.
