Is there anything worse than an unfunny comedy?
The Villain did give me a few laughs early on, but those soon vanished. Cactus Jack Slade (Kirk Douglas!) is hired to waylay Charming Jones (Ann-Margaret!) and dispose of her guardian, who is literally named Handsome Stranger (Arnold Freaking Schwarzenegger!!!).
It was decided somewhere in there that Cactus Jack was really Wile E. Coyote, rigging up a number of not-so-ingenious death traps that backfire. They even do the painting-a-fake-tunnel-onto-the-side-of the-mountain trick!
But director Hal Needham is pointedly not Chuck Jones. Kirk Douglas is incredibly game, and has good comic timing... but the movie itself does not.
