    funny and likable lead saves a very odd parody of the west. I loved this film when i was younger and was surprised the quality has withstood time. quite like blazing saddles, this film is just plain fun.

    Halarious! A great western parody that should be recongized like Blazing Saddles, but in a somewhat different manner. Go see it for a good laugh!

    James Garner plays sheriff against a daddy and his rotten sons. It's lighthearted and fun.

    I saw this as a teenager but it's still a cute western.
