Fun ABC Movie of the Week
Verified purchase
Really liked the movie, great actors with some fun chemistry. And a nice theme of friendship.
Plus a great raucous final showdown. Was sad when it ended. .
I have fond memories of Edgar Buchanan from Petticoat Junction.

***Spoiler Alert for the below paragraphs:

This movie contains one of my favorite scenes of any movie. Tickled me Pink!
Jason is having his bachelor party the night before his wedding. The party consists of a row of 5 old men sitting in rockers on the front porch They pass around the aged "3 month old" hooch bottle. And then the "women" consist of a picture of a woman from France in lingerie. Funniest thing was when the Jason got the picture, his eyes were so bad it was only a blur :) Women and Whiskey!

The second great scene was when Walter Brennan said "Just look up to heaven before you get into a gun fight" And there are two guns aimed straight at them. :D Plus "You hear the man... get"

Fun movie, lovable characters
Verified purchase
I was young the first time I saw these movies and I loved them then. Now that I'm over the hill I love them even more. My favorite thing about this movie is the newspaper guy. If you saw the first one you'll probably know what I mean.

A Fred Astaire Western!
Verified purchase
A predictable made-for-TV movie from 1970 featuring a quartet of western veterans and...Fred Astaire! While Astaire looks more like a riverboat gambler than a feared ex-Texas Ranger, it was fun watching him in an unexpected role. The picture quality is not perfect, as if the master has been allowed to degenerate over the years. And the "extra" biography of Astaire contains a big error, saying he appeared in two movies called "Irene Castle" and "The Story of Vernon." He was actually in one film titled "The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle"! Oops. For Astaire fans, it's worth watching.

Packed Full of Great Familiar Faces .

Love this! Must have been one of Fred's (Astaire) final roles and he's great. . Easy going story of broken down, retired Texas rangers supporting one another for one last time. Not much violence so please Check your Guns at the door to your tv room!

Once more, age and guile beat youthful exuberance!
Verified purchase
Very entertaining; still amusing with much less silliness. Better story, good acting.

Have to say, however, that nothing suggests that the final scenes are fantasy. If not, something missing.

This was fun watching. We hadn't seen some of these actors in some time. Fred Astaire played a very believable drunk. We enjoyed it.
