Did You Know?


Composer Alexandre Azaria was inspired by Alan Silvestri's scores for Back to the Future Part III (1990) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) to such an extend that in several scenes the music sounds almost exactly the same (the scores were possibly used as a temp track on an early edit).

Flawed but fun!
27 June 2008 | by vawlkee_2000See all my reviews

A lot of people seem to like to trash this film, granted it ain't "Gone With the Wind", but it's not "The Terror of Tiny Town" either.

Judor and Bedia as Joe and Averell are okay - obviously they have their act down very well - so well in fact, that it can be very tedious at times, very.......Their constant mugging, while entertaining generally, gets in the way of the rest of the film's pacing at times.

I grew up from the late 60's on with Lucky Luke comics, so I'm more than familiar with they humor involved.

The film is reminiscent of "The Three Stooges" in it's scope, pity they weren't around to do it! Can you imagine Moe as Joe, Curly as Averell and Larry and Shemp as the other brothers. WOW!

When I show the DVD to friends I mention that if they like the Stooges, they'll like this film.

Complaints about the lack of Lucky Luke's air time is valid, but, of course, this is a film about the Daltons and Luke is just along to keep it interesting.

The fiesta at El Tarlo's is wonderfully done and reminiscent of "Three Amigos" but a lot more surreal in nature..

I recommend it as a nice diversion.
