Perfect summing up of the highlights, I always liked this movie for being a nice parody of the Seven Samurai / the Magnificent Seven.

I loved watching this movie on VHS when I was growing it. Coincidentally, it was great practice for Chevy Chase.

Rog, I was wondering if you knew what plethora means? Cause I'd hate to think that you used the word without knowing the meaning.

This movie is an A+ comedy.

To this day I occasionally get "My Little Buttercup" in my head. Especially if there are tense situations or long silences. All I need to do now is learn the dance and I will be perfect.

I used to enjoy this movie a lot when I was younger. I don't think I've watched it too recently since as I got older the more Martin Short makes me sick...I'm sorry people he's not funny.

Icculus, this is the only Martin Short I've ever loved. MY favorite line from this movie is when Steve Martin says somtyhing along the lines of:

"Everyone has their El Guapo. For some, shyness is their El Guapo. For some, illiteracy is their El Guapo. For the citizens of this town, their El Guapo happens to be the real El Guapo."

I'd forgotten how good this film is. My favourite line has to be:

"I was thinking later, you could kiss me on the veranda"
"Lips would be fine"

I pray I'll be able to say that someday...

The first time I'd ever laughed uncontrollably in a movie theater was during the scene with the singing bush. Great movie, and it's one I can't wait to show my kids when they are old enough.

A fucking classic.

I've never heard anyone say anything bad about it, so I was unaware it apparently gets a bad rap?

I have never met anyone who didn't like it either, maybe he meant bad reviews from critics.

There are definitely plenty o' critics who didn't think it was very entertaining, but I also knew a bunch o' people in college who thought it was, in their words, "lame". This, of course, boggled my mind since I thought it was a hilarious flick. Doesn't exactly have the best rating on IMDB either... so yeah, there are obviously people out there who just don't like it. But as they say, you can't please everybody.

I'm not sure which Chevy Chase lines I like better, either :

Well we really dont have a plan B. We didn't expect for the first plan to work. Sometimes you can overplan these things.

or the exchange while he was playing like one of El Guapo's men (from IMDB)
El Guapo: And uh...
Dusty Bottoms: Pruned!
El Guapo: ...pruned the, uh...
Dusty Bottoms: Hedges!
El Guapo: ...hedges of...
Dusty Bottoms: Many small villages

A real classic. I wonder what you think about the upcoming remake(basically) "Tropic thunder"? Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr are the new "Amigos".

I'm not one to listen to much for critics, and I too have not heard anything bad about this movie. I for one like this movie so much that if i had a safe i would surely put it there.

I'm puzzled that anyone could not like this movie. But then, I'm also puzzled as to why people hate Little Nicky so much.

People simply don't understand this level of sophisticated comedy. There are simplistic jokes and one liners on the surface, but the subtlety is what makes all of that worth it. Basically it's a Mel Brookes movie without mel, and because the majority of movie viewers are sheep who never truely watch a movie and merely base their opinion on what they are told it should be, some people didn't like it simply because they weren't TOLD to like it.

It wasn't a block-buster smash, so my guess is those who told you it was "lame" never actually watched the film and were to embarrassed to admit it. As for film critics, well they are almost always wrong, heralding crap-fests, and hating quality movies. So any critical analysis should promptly be ignored.

Personally, I can get behind any film in which the bad guys rape the horses and ride off on the women. :D
