Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Large cast is uniformly fine with tongue-twisting, pulpy dialogue, though pic presents only brief flashes of what look to be fully realized characterizations jettisoned at some point during production or post."
‑ Eddie Cockrell, Variety
"The end result may not be a full-blown disaster, but it comes close."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"just another bad Hollywood western farce..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A bit of a mess, but it's not unenjoyable and it boasts a kind of absurd sincerity that's actually rather appealing."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"[A] almost refreshing for its total lack of ambition."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
"A documentary on baseball's Texas Rangers and their last-place season would have been more interesting."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"This is one bland and cheesy Tex-Mex burrito of a movie."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A real loser, lock, stock and barrel."
‑ Guylaine Cadorette, Hollywood.com
"The storyline is awfully thin...and even at a running time of around 81 minutes (without credits), the movie does tend to drag in certain sections."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A hip, cool western featuring some of today's hottest young stars."
‑ Louis B. Hobson, Jam! Movies
"As dull as its title."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Wish it had a few other things, you know, like an adult sensibility, a closer allegiance to the truth, and maybe a little concern for how the English of 1875 was spoken."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"The film has very little energy and originality."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Call it Dude, Where's My Horse?"
‑ Marrit Ingman, Austin Chronicle
"Mediocre movies know no genres."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
