In my opinion one of the best comedies I have seen.
With Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short all on top form as the three dim-witted unemployed Hollywood actors who are enlisted to help a little mexican village from the terrors of a man called "El Guapo"! The thing is...they think its just a show, that is until the real bullets start flying.
This film has some truly brilliant slapstick moments which I won't ruin for you (but the "my little buttercup" song and "male plane" joke had me in fits).
This film will keep everyone entertained with the various gunfights, a fight with invisible swordsman (doesn't last long), singing bushes, sing alongs and "male" planes. What is not to love about this film. It is Highly recommended.

I love it every moment of it is so funny and I can watch it over and over again. The singing bush, Little Neddy, Germans, Mexicans, and pretty ladies this film has it all. Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short are so funny and it is there best film. In one words this film is Brillant and a must buy.

I first saw the Three Amigos a number of years ago and recently bought it on DVD. Along with digital enhancments it is still one of those comedy classics. Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short all give brilliant performances with great individual touches to the characters they portrait. There isn't a moment without comedy, "toungue in cheek" romance or mass gun fighting (with amazing gun skills) in this film.
Buy it! Its one of those movies you will want to watch over and over again.

"We're just going to have to use our brains."
"Dammit!"

Back in 1986, Three Amigos! was considered a bit of a disappointment considering the talent involved, but it's aged surprisingly well even if it's more pleasantly amusing than side-splitting. The idea's pretty foolproof, replaying the old Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven plot of a village beset by bandits (led by Alfonso Arau, Emilio Hernandez's sidekick in The Wild Bunch, but promoted to lead villain duties here) calling on a bunch of down on their luck heroes to defend them. Only this time, instead of ronin or guns for hire, after mistaking a movie for the real thing they call on three silent movie stars who have just been fired by their studio without even the shirts off their back in the form of Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short. The hapless trio aren't any the wiser either because the poor villagers couldn't afford to send them a detailed telegram, and from the ten peso version they ended up with they think they're just making a personal appearance south of the border where they still have some fans left...

It never quite makes enough of the comic possibilities, but even if it's more of a steady canter than a gallop it throws in just enough that does work or raise a laugh, much of it based on the various characters' ignorance (no-one knows what infamous, plethora or foreplay mean).

I think this is a very good film, especially if you have children. My son thinks it is great and is always singing the opening song. The whole family can watch this film many times always picking out bits we hadn't noticed before. The film may be unrealistic and silly but isn't that the point of comedies, it would be a very dull film if it stuck to real life.

"Three Amigos!" is the kind of film comedy fans would want to own. But therein lies a problem for British buyers.

At present (March 2014) this American HBO Disc is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to be 'all regions' (which few are).

It'll get a release on this side of the pond in the future no doubt (Region B). But until then - hold off and avoid an expensive disappointment...

An overlooked comedic classic (and pretty darn silly, too) "The Three Amigos" was overdue for a Blu-ray release.

Three silent film stars (Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short)known as the Three Amigos from their westerns. When the three are fired by their producer Harry Flugleman for demanding more money they desperately take the only job offered to them by telegram--to "perform" in a small Mexican village unaware that the villagers have mistaken them for real heroes and are hiring them to get rid of the bandit El Guapo.

Playing as a delicious parody of "The Magnificent Seven" (which was, in turn, an adaption of "The Seven Samuri"), "Three Amigos" plays with the conventions of the western genre and Hollywood personas. Written by Steve Martin, Lorne Michaels and Randy Newman (who also composed the campfire song), it was a box office flop when released back in 1986 but has gained a cult following since then. The premise worked so well that it appeared again in the film "Galaxy Quest" and even "A Bug's Life".

While I'm happy to finally have this on Blu-ray the transfer itself suffers from some compression problems and grain management is a bit inconsistent with some shots appearing grainer than others. The transfer also shows evidence of over processing over processing. This looks to be pulled from an old HD master but it is evidently a recent transfer which makes the sometimes sloppy presentation even more inexcusable. The film comes on a 25gig disc and while grain is quite prominent at times there are some problems with moire (which appears as "strobbing")aside from these problems the film looks pretty good if inconsistent in its presentation here. I'm guessing that most folks won't notice any of these issues.
