Plot: Three out of work silent movie actors are accidentally drawn to a Mexican village that is being harassed by a gang of outlaws. The three, 'Ned', 'Lucky Day' and 'Dusty Bottoms' play 'Lone Ranger' types in their movies, but must play their parts for real now. Written by Rob Hartill Runtime: 104 min Release Date: 12 Dec 1986
This is an homage to many old comedies: Old jokes, Silent movieplot lines. It's like a Laurel and Hardy film that was never made.The movie is the joke. Much like Blazing Saddles or YoungFrankenstein. I don't know why more people don't get the joke andrate this movie higher. As it is, it is definitely underrated.
Might Be The Funniest Film I've Ever Seen (by ccthemovieman-1)
I was shocked when I discovered I hadn't reviewed this despite writing many reviews, since it is one of my favorite comedies of all time. It may even rank as the funniest movie I've ever seen. It just has a ton of laughs, start-to-finish, and without all the raunch and profanity of today's comedy films - although it's no "Bambi," that's for sure.Not only does the dialog produce numerous laugh-out-loud scenes but so do all the sight gags, nd there are plenty of those. The funniest characters in the film are the villains, led by "El Guapo," played by <more>
Alfonso Arau. He is almost indescribable. All he has to do is open his mouth and show his bad teeth and then give his huge smile and I crack up every time.The three leads - played by Steve Martin, Matin Short and Chevy Chase - are all excellent and in the primes of their careers. The film also is directed by John Landis, who has a knack for directing extremely entertaining movies. Just look at his resume on the IMDb. This film was written by Martin, Lorne Michales of "Saturday Night Live," and songwriter Randy Newman. Kudos to all of them for a job well done.In addition to the great comedy, decent language and color characters both good guys and bad guys, was the beautiful cinematography. There is a very colorful-looking film and looks outstanding on DVD.Overall: this is what entertainment is all about.
"Together, we raped the Horses and rode-off on the Women" (by sean-haydock)
This is the level of humour you'll find throughout the movie.It's an ironic twist on the Western cliché with a story based on The Magnificent Seven.The recently out-of-work 3 Movie-Stars are unwittingly employed as bona-fide gun-slingers. They find themselves out-numbered 5:1 by the infamous "More than Famous, He's In-Famous!" , El Guapo Alfonso Arau and his Banditos.This impossible situation is soon turned around by quick thinking Girl A:"I like the one who is not so clever". Girl B:"Which one is that?" and lots of sewing... yes, I said <more>
"sewing"!If you listen to this movie closely, you'll pick-up on a lot of humour that would otherwise be lost.
Wow - some people really miss how wonderful this film is. Every time I watch it, it gets better. The first time I saw it early 90s , I thought it was funny, but just one film among many funny films. I watched it often, and my senses became dull to its humor. I watched it a month ago, and I realized that this film is really genius.Almost every scene has some element of brilliance in it.For instance - the "Blue Shadows" campfire scene. Its done on a sound stage with ridiculous cardboard cut-outs in the background - like the crappy films of yore - it has the older guys calming the <more>
younger guy who is obviously an adult, not a child who needs a bedtime song , and talking animals. Its so cheesy its wonderful.SPOILER WARNING: And there's the final fight scene. Every shot of the fight scene uses Chevy, Steve, and Martin in it - but when the townspeople come out, dressed like the Amigos, it is obvious that these are not the people we saw during the fight. The fight outfits have all sorts of embroidery on them - not like the townspeople's outfits at all. You know that what the movie has just claimed has happened, has not happened that way at all. And it knows you know that. Its great.The Three Amigos is a great film and you will be rewarded if you go back to it and view it as the great work that it is.
Three cheers for the Amigos! Most excellent fun for those needing a good laugh (by inkblot11)
Lucky Day Steve Martin , Dusty Bottoms Chevy Chase and Ned Nederlander Martin Short are a silent movie trio known as the "Three Amigos". Wealthy landowners in Mexico, they travel around the country, in their spare moments, and rescue the downtrodden from the clutches of evil forces, like a triplets version of Zorro. Lucky is very adept at rope tricks and the others have their shooting skills, too. Their films are one heroic feat after another and very popular. But, in real life, these three actors are studio property and make very little money, depending on the movie moguls for <more>
food, lodging, and clothing. When Lucky decides that they should ask for a boost in salary, the unlucky threesome is stripped down to their underwear and tossed out of the set on their ears. But, wait. From Mexico comes a telegram requesting their services, as a small town is being menaced by El Guapo Alfonso Arau and company. However, due to the truncated nature of the telegram, the amigos believe that there are being asked only to star in a film and do their usual "fake" heroism. What a surprise when they land in Mexico and find out they are expected to save the village from a gang with loaded guns! With everyone in town pitting their entire existence on the amigos, can they deliver? This is a very funny film, with wonderful performances, writing and direction. Not only are the three stars terrific, but Arau is side-splittingly humorous, as are the other hispanic cast members. The scenery in Mexico is both lovely and barren while the costuming is first rate, too. As a co-writer, Martin deserves much praise, also, for there are many memorable lines and laugh-out-loud episodes. From Dusty requesting something other than "Mexican" food from his hosts to an accidental shooting of the "invisible horseman" and more, most viewers will be transported far away from life's daily routine with any showing. So, three cheers for the Amigos and get ready to laugh up a storm when you get this one into the DVD player.
I agree with Jerbeargood from Arizona, Phoenix. This is a fantastic comedy I don't understand why it has a low rating here. I would give this 9/10. Great cast and good Plot. One of the best parts of the film:Riding through the desert, HOT. The first Amigo, Steve Martin, opens his flask with great anticipation, only to discover there is about a teaspoon's worth of water in it. The next Amigo, Martin Short, pours the contents of his flask in his mouth. The flask is full of sand. Then Chevy Chase, the third Amigo, opens his flask and it seems as if it has an endless supply of water. It <more>
pours all over his mouth and face and shirt. He has enough water to gargle, spit, swish water in his mouth, and spit again. After his fill, then tosses the flask aside. The flask hits the ground and water comes pouring out of it. The other two Amigos have been watching this the whole time. The scene ends with Chevy Chase applying lip balm and then offering it to the other two.
We are the 3 Ah-haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaMigos! (by sarahhumphreysdayoff)
Love it. Love it. Love it. This movie is jam-packed with hilarity. The story is good for an 80s comedy as well. Chase, Martin and Short are a power house as the 3 Amigos. And El Guapo has so many good lines I'm laughing just thinking about them, "Do you even know what a plethora is???" Every time I hear that word I think of him, which is pretty sad I guess. The scene with Dusty Bottoms Chase , singing at the celebrations as if he has a frog in his throat makes me laugh every time, My little buttercup scene in the tavern with Ned Short with the hankerchief on his head, the <more>
calls they have to make to summon the invisible swordsman, the part in the desert..."lip balm?" I'm embarrassed to say how many times I have seen this movie, I'm just going to say a lot...and would recommend to everyone!
We are the Three Amigos! arrriba aaahhaaaa! (by jerome_horwitz)
This movie is really an interesting comedy film. It's not necessarily the story or production values. More the combination of having super star comedian's Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short share the silver screen in one film. This was the first and last film with this particular cast of talented comedians.The Three Amigos is about three early film heroes with funny names who lose their favor with the film studio they work for. Afterwards, these three doofuses in real life, mistakenly except a show appearance in Mexico. Of course the Amigos have no idea their soon to be <more>
"infamous" co-star is actually a real villain, and the show is a real life struggle with a group of bandits. It's a real showdown.By the end of the film, the Amigos become the film stars they were, but in real life. There are trials and difficulties they must face along the way, providing for some interesting and varying situations. There is simple comedy throughout the film, from beginning to ending. This movie will not challenge you to think, but it will appeal to your funny bone. Really intellectual comedy would not have fit into this film, giving the sort of thick headed nature of the main characters.Timing of these comedy masters is excellent, which makes the movie appealing and entertaining and that is why the film is successful. Above all, that is what is so great about this film. It's three stars giving their best, plus a great supporting cast of well-known and not so well-known actors and actresses.Technically this film is put together pretty well. You'll appreciate varying camera angles, nice sets, and colorful outdoor scenery. Production values are at least average, and there's some nice attention to detail. You will notice for example many of the bandidos have bad teeth. Something classic western movies are often knocked for, but this movie takes into account.Over all for most watching this film should be an enjoyable for those with average sense of humor. Trying to take this film too seriously would definitely be a mistake. Those viewers prone to do so should probably pick a different movie off the rack.8/10
From the three buffoonic Amigos to el Guapo and his sweater-knitting henchmen, this farcical comedy-western is a mindless journey of snickers and chuckles. Make no mistake, this movie IS stupid -- on purpose. The singing bush?...the Invisible Swordsman?...campfire-singing animals?...please. But the comedic brilliance of Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short sells even the silliest shtick.On the other hand, there are some classic pieces and one-liners in here that demonstrate the film's writing depth, which shouldn't be overlooked, including the surprisingly deep relationship <more>
between el Guapo Alfonso Arau and his right-hand-man, Jefe Tony Plana .All in all, you don't really watch this to digest a movie and follow the evolution of characters, you watch it in chunks as skit after skit that affords endless enjoyment if you allow it.So give it a go and have fun...you might be surprised.
