The ultimate in anti violence, comedy and action, 12 Nov. 2000
Destry is one of the great movie characters, from the first moment you see his lanky form you can't help but feel a connection. When the wimp finally shows the town what a real man is it comes as no surprise but even so, the sense of glee one derives from those few, well place, bullets is worht the wait and then on repeat viewings, the anticipation. On top of all this you are also treated to the electric Frenchy, the simmering singer who has taken the town by the trousers along with old Marsh the bumbling aid who knocks at your funny bone and pulls at your sympathies. Supporting these main characters are an array of wonderful creations, rare in films of any age, which drag you into the movie and let you forget that there's a real world. Add all this to a plot and youhave one of the best movies ever made.
