Nice find! Recommended by Rob Ager as one of his 15 best westerns; The director, Robert Aldrich, excelled at buddy films, so, though Gene Wilder does a great turn, it's really only when Harrison Ford turns up that the film spreads it wings. Indeed, Ford makes a virile "angel," as Wilder calls him, whether descending from on high to rescue Wilder or wrestling with him on a beach.

Harrison Ford says both vulgar words and words that took Our LORD's name in vain. The Jewish religion is not the real religion. Catholicism is. Hollywood would never make a movie like this with a priest instead of a rabbi. Not at all recommended.

Really bad movie! Waste of almost 2 hours of my life!!

Better than some have said, and certainly not Gene Wilder nor Harrison Ford's best, but I enjoyed this mostly corny film, which is really not about religion at all, but friendship, and overcoming seemingly unsurmountable obstacles which life sometimes puts in our past. Not to mention a few chuckles along the way,

Painfully unfunny. A box-office bomb in its day, scarcely distributed at all. And it has aged poorly. Turgidly paced; each minute of the 118-minute running time lasts an eternity. Gene Wilder's beard is nice, and that's about it.

It may not be as obviously side splitting as some of Gene Wilder's other movies, but I thought the acting was perfect, the chemistry superb, and the jokes witty. To me, the movie is less of a cocktail full of flavors and various types of alcohol and more of a fine wine.

Disappointing. Didn't find it funny at all.
