Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Super Jane Fonda in Wild West. Ride 'em cowgirls!"
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Lee Marvin clearly steals the film in his double role as the good guy/bad guy hired gunman."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Marvin won an Oscar for his dual good guy/bad guy portrayal."
‑ Boo Allen, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
"A wonderful Western spoof. Marvin great in dual role; drags at times, but mostly a hoot."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"A drunk Lee Marvin on a horse to match makes this comedy western classic."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Clever spoof with great roles for Fonda and Marvin"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"First-rate western parody."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Though designed as a star vehicle for Jane Fonda, this first "official" spoof of the Western genre, catapulted Lee Marvin to major stardom, offering him two divergent roles (one played with a silver nose) for which he was rewarded with the 1965 Oscar."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Mainly remembered for Marvin's Oscar-winning comedic performance"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"This is neither Fonda's finest role nor a very challenging one - it's a cleavage and one-liner affair - but it's fun and entertaining."
‑ Jeffrey Bruner, Des Moines Register
