There are no women listed in the writing credits for this movie, so I've gotta believe that one or both of the male authors was a wuss. Now I don't mean any disrespect for them, but give me a break . . . . there are waaaaaaay too many men promising to build a new home for a young lady with stars in her eyes . . . . . or maybe one of the authors was a home builder in addition to writing movie scripts. I don't know, but I know that more women are promised a new home in this cowboy adventure than in any other movie that I have ever watched.
Every cowboy western has one young girl for the hero to moon over, but in this one most of the men have a gal at their elbow. Even the bit part actor with the Swedish accent is promising some gal at the wedding that he will build her a house with a fine potato . . . er . . . make that 'patio.' Now don't get me wrong, there is plenty fighting and killing in this one, but without a doubt the gals in this adventure have their men wrapped around their fingers. The men can fight and win against the dangerous outlaw band led by 'Scar' Adams, but back home the gals are decidedly the winners. Against the outlaws our heroes can use their fists and guns, but against the ladies they are limited to their wits . . . and the gals win this one hands down. So my advice to all of the male cowboy movie fans out there . . . guys, watch this one alone - if your best girl is sitting beside you as you watch this one, she may get some ideas that you would rather she didn't. Be very quiet as you pop your bowl of white kernel popcorn and get ready to watch this one alone, fellows. Let your lady keep reading that pulp fiction novel and keep the volume of the movie down a bit as you watch this one. Especially if you are a single fellow, and your girlfriend likes cowboy movies . . . save this movie for when you are alone . . . . men, you have been warned! :~)
