The critics were wrong.
Or, I have no taste. That’s certainly possible.
But if it’s wrong to love a film where a young Arnold Schwarzenegger plays naïve “Handsome Stranger,” Ann-Margret shakes her moneymaker, and dastardly outlaw Kirk Douglas is a live-action Wile E. Coyote, I don’t want to be right.
Slapped together by stuntman turned director Hal Needham, this is basically a PG-rated version of Blazing Saddles.
Like its predecessor, there’s probably some moments here — like Paul Lynde as a Native American chief named Nervous Elk — likely to irk tender modern sensibilities.
If so, well, I have no taste.
