I had fun--lots of action and pretty funny but geez--it's a stupid movie

If you're a stickler for details, you'll be 'thrilled' to know that both Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly are in Texas and the transcontinental railroad was joined in Texas also.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

And revolvers can be shot up to about 23 times w/o reloading.

I thought it was "meh". Had a few decent one liners...

Don't make anyone a priority when you are only an option.

That's why they call them twenty four shooters.

** The old west six shooters were generally only loaded with 5 shots due to the risk of going off if the hammer was bumped. Proper loading technique was to load one, skip one, then load four more, followed by cocking the revolver and dropping the hammer on an empty cylinder.

Your mileage may vary... in accordance with the prophecy.

Do not back up. Severe tire damage.

They filmed a good chunk of this movie close to my home. In fact, a local trombone player is an extra in the band. I probably won't go see it (3 small children at home means going to the movie is a HUGE ordeal and saved for movies we REALLY want to see).
