Mediocre comedy (well, I presume they wanted to make you laugh)  western. Two fellas (one is Karis) riding on a bycicled-trained Trinity-like stretcher arrive into town and destroy the local villain's (Hill) gang. Only good thing is the movie lasts just a bit over 70'. Score by Savina immemorable. 2\10

Mediocre comedy 2\10 


Mediocre should be in the 4 to 5 range.
This of course deserves nothing more than a 1.
There is a bit more sex in here than even the sexier SW but no nudity. Why?

I think the only scene I enjoyed was the shooting contest only because you don't see that often in this genre.

Interestingly enough, Weisser's synopsis for this is dead on.

You want to split hairs?

Maybe the answer lies in those 10 minutes apparently missing from the version we both saw.
