Plot Summary

An amusing spoof of the good 'ole westerns back in the halcyon days when all the cliches were held up as icons, this parody by Hugh Wilson works best for savvy audiences. Rex O'Herlihan (Tom Berenger) is a singing cowboy with a wardrobe straight out of the Hollywood westerns of the '40s he worships his horse, and has a trusty sidekick too. Every town he wanders into has a sheriff on the dole, a shady cattle rancher, a prostitute with a heart of gold, an innocent young damsel, a town drunk, and the standard bad guys in black hats and long coats (Spaghetti-western style) who brutalize the poor sheep ranchers. After setting things straight in each identical town as he goes, Rex is beginning to feel like a re-run junky when he saunters into a town that is slightly different and the parodies continue.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Mr. Berenger is perfectly adequate but, like the film, he's on much too long. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 15, 2014

Rotten: Even on the mechanical level in which it was made, the number of jokes that don't work far outnumber the ones that do. – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, Jul 15, 2014

Rotten: As a 10-minute sketch on Saturday Night Live, it probably would have been dynamite. But at 1 hour, 28 minutes, the picture seems padded. – Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, Jul 15, 2014

Customer Reviews

Yes watch this movie!

This is one of the most original movie comedies you can watch. Funny script and some music you actually enjoy. A real take on the early western and later versions of westerns. Don't rent, own it.

A cult classic!

This movie is in the grand tradition of Airplane! and Blazing Saddles! I laughed until I cried. Thank you, iTunes for adding this one to the selections and, uhh... hold the hair!

Underrated

Seriously, this movie is very funny. One of my old favorites, which I will buy:)
