(fr) wrote: I found this movie really enjoyable, mostly because of the set-up. it allowed Jim to be really funny, and just random. The humor was also spot on with things like the scene where he gets pulled over, and the infamous blue pen.
(es) wrote: It's a fun coming of age movie with women.
(us) wrote: This is one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. An instant classic in my family. The entire movie is done tongue in cheek, and that is why it is so funny. It basically says "We're spoofing every single western movie, we're going to narrate it while we make fun of them and ourselves, so sit back and prepare to laugh". It does not fail to deliver. Every single scene has memorable quotes. If you happen to find this movie, get it. You will not regret it.
