Some great humour. One of my favourites, "I never should have given him that book on napoleon. Now he always sticks his hand in his vest."
Super Reviewer

some funny moments but doesn't have the heart the first team up had, funny at times but definitely a step down compared to support your local sherriff.

Very funny classic western.. I love James Garner. With dialogue like this, how can you lose?

I'm supposed to pretend I'm Swifty Morgan? Goodbye!

They're willing to pay.

How much?

One thousand dollars. We'll split it fifty-fifty. That means four hundred for you.

That seems fair. But I think that...

No, no you don't. That's part of the deal. I do the thinking, you stand around and look tough.

Sequel to "Support Your Local Sheriff" offers a pretty similar story of conman James Garner taming a wacky town in the wild west, mostly with his wits instead of his guns or fists. Burt Kennedy returned to direct this entertaining, though awfully silly, west. Jack Elam, Harry Morgan, Henry Jones, Dub Taylor and Kathleen Freeman all also return for this sequel and are joined by the very likable Suzanne Pleshette, Joan Blondell, Chuck Connors, Marie Windsor, and John Dehner. It's a complete piece of fluff, but it's a very amiable film

Support Your Local Gunfighter is charming. It's interesting how this isn't a sequel to Support Your Local Sheriff, even though it features many of the same actors. It's completely silly, especially the ending, and it's totally predictable, but there's something endearing about this story about a con man in the old west. Rest in peace, James Garner.

A remake of "Suport your local sheriff". This is the better of the two films.

This is the second of James Garner's "Support Your Local" western series. This one is the funnier of the two. This movie has a story and it is a comedy Western and not a spoof of the Western Movie. The character is again a version of the Maverick character he played in the Maverick TV series. I first saw this movie with my cousin at the old movie theater in downtown McAlester, Oklahoma. We laughed so hard our sides hurt. Then we laughed the entire walk back to his house. The best lines all had the word "ass" in them. Of course they were talking about donkeys. Suzanne Pleshette was great in this movie as the wild daughter. Then at the end Jack Elam claims to go on to be a big star in Italian Westerns talking to the audience. It's set in Purgatory, Colorado which is a real town in Colorado. Of course this is a fictional version and not the real Purgatory.

A good comedy western.

Good enough to have been a Disney film from Uncle Walt. Exceptional cast, but focus on Ellen Corby, Suzanne, and Jack. We all know and love Jack, right?

not as good as the previous, but it was still enjoyable. the tatoo thing was funny, but very remnant of wino forever, and it made me laugh.

Caught this on TMC the other night, and was really loved it. A very funny western spoof with a lot of heart.

Lacks most of the charming wit and tongue-in-cheek humor of Support Your Local Sherrif. Actually looks more like a parody of a Jamess Garner Maverick movie, only Garner parodies himself, which is quite odd. Goldie Hawn playing a madam? Now THAT's good type casting.

For a western comedy (which is a sub genre i don't care for), this isn't a bad flick at all - greatly helped by the always likeable James ROCKFORD FILES Garner and the awesome Jack Elam! One of those "lazy rainy day" movies
that you catch on tv and sit and watch.

Fun way to spend an evening. Favorite line: "We all got to die sometime."

"Yeah, but the smart ones put it off as long as possible."
