[An] anemic Blazing Saddles-wannabe.

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.

A stridently unfunny western comedy that is equally lame in its writing and direction.

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.

A sunshiney hodgepodge of bad jokes, nice scenery and reverse stereotypes.

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.

Everyone's creative burners were on low heat for this woeful outing.

[A] broken-down nag of a movie.

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

Wagons East! has the distinction of being Candy's final film, and it is dedicated to his memory. That, unfortunately, is its only distinction.

One of the least amusing comedies I've ever seen.

A ghastly western parody that does not honor Uncle Buck's memory, but exploits his last, pitiable appeal for laughter.
