Three out of work silent movie actors are accidentally drawn to a Mexican village that is being harassed by a gang of outlaws. The three, 'Ned', 'Lucky Day' and 'Dusty Bottoms' play 'Lone Ranger' types in their movies, but must play their parts for real now.Written by
John Candy was offered a role in the movie, but turned it down due to scheduling conflicts. See more »
The telegram that Lucky reads aloud is different from the "10-peso version" created by the telegraph operator. However, it was sent by Morse code and it may have been restated or misinterpreted. See more »
One time, Dorothy Gish was visiting me on the set of "Little Neddy, Grab Your Gun". And she came up to me and she looked me in the face and - I'd never met her, I'd just known her on films, you know, Dorothy Gish, Lillian's sister - and she looked me in the eyes and she said, "Young man, you have got it." And. Ah! Dorothy Gish. It's a true story.

Weirdly, the 1999 DVD cuts off the credits right after the "Print by Deluxe" label first appears. The Blu-ray release corrects this and the credits are shown in their entirety. See more »
The spaghetti western meets the three stooges. Martin, Short and Chase deliver one of their most memorable performances as three out of work actors hired, unwittingly, to be real gun fighters.
These three comic greats work with a beautiful chemistry, to make you laugh hard enough to split your pants, every time you watch this movie. One scene rolls, painlessly, into another without making you look at your watch once as The Three Amigos attempt to stop the evil banditos (grungy, greasy, cavorting, drinking and shooting at everything - just as in the spaghetti westerns, but with a sillier and lighter edge versus a serious and menacing one) from taking advantage of the poor peasants.
This is a classic comic film, with real comics pulling out all the stops, that I feel everyone should see. Guaranteed to make everyone laugh!
