Three Amigos! Details


This slapstick farce features Dusty Bottoms ([[Performer~P12488~Chevy Chase~chevychase]]), Lucky Day ([[Performer~P101485~Steve Martin~stevemartin]]), and Ned Nederlander ([[Performer~P65439~Martin Short~martinshort]]), as three silent movie cowboy stars who get the axe from their Hollywood studio. Just at that opportune moment, a woman named Carmen ([[Performer~P46095~Patrice Martinez~patricemartinez]]) asks them to come to her forgotten little town south of the border and do some work for her, for a tidy sum. The three "stooges" agree, thinking they are going to perform their singing cowboy routine, but instead Carmen wants them to get rid of the nasty El Guapo ([[Performer~P79847~Alfonso Arau~alfonsoarau]]) who is running roughshod over the good citizens of the town. Not the kind of heroes they appear to be in the movies, they have a difficult time helping out the distressed townsfolk. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
