Comment

This film embodies all the qualities that I hate in a Spaghetti Western comedy. And I actually enjoy most of these comedies! But the film here is mostly a compilation of unimaginably tedious fight scenes that are all scored to a grossly overplayed bubble gum musical score all involving a fat man wih dark hair and a grumpy attitude. Sound familiar? All too much. Trinity was pretty new with these ideas but here, they're so overdone, it self parodies its self parody!
