The jokes here sound a lot funnier than they play.

[An] anemic Blazing Saddles-wannabe.

May 22, 2013
Awful. A candidate for one of the year's worst movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 22, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 22, 2013
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.
May 22, 2013
A poorly focused and rhythmless collection of vignettes, Wagons East! does contain a few funny ideas and some decent performances that simply are not enough to rescue the movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 22, 2013
A stridently unfunny western comedy that is equally lame in its writing and direction.
May 22, 2013
There's little to praise in Peter Markle's handling of Matthew Carlson's heavy-handed screenplay.
May 22, 2013
This forgettable comedy western is quite dreadful.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 22, 2013
A wagon train of disgruntled pioneers returning to the East is the incidental setting for tired, adolescent humor in this ponderous and directionless comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 22, 2013
With credits that include such garbage as Hot Dog... The Movie, director and former hockey player Peter Markle displays an utter lack of comic sensibility.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 22, 2013
A sunshiney hodgepodge of bad jokes, nice scenery and reverse stereotypes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 22, 2013
A typically rickety vehicle, just dumb enough that it actually submerges Candy's sweet, perky persona in what's basically a sullen, grizzled straight-man role.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 23, 2012
Everyone's creative burners were on low heat for this woeful outing.
September 7, 2011
[A] broken-down nag of a movie.

In what purports to be a comedic spin on the wagon-train Western genre, John Candy is sadly almost unrecognisable with a scruffy beard and long hair.

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

May 24, 2003
Much potential for comedy is lost, thanks to a weak script, desultory direction and indifferent performances.
