Movie Reviews

A very funny, family-friendly movie
Kurt A. Johnson | North-Central Illinois, USA | 01/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When Penelope "Bad Penny" Cushings (played by Barbara Rhoades) is captured after a stagecoach holdup, she is unexpectedly offered a pardon, if she will help the government by finding out who is running guns to the Indians. When her contact, who is to go undercover with her as her husband, turns up with a bullet through him, Penny needs a new husband and quick! She needs someone dumb and easily manipulated, someone like...Dr. Jesse Haywood (Don Knotts), a dentist dude from back East, who wants to spread the gospel of oral health in the West! Under Penny's watchful eye, Doc Haywood begins a life of danger and renown. Now, if only he can stay alive long enough to enjoy it. [Color, released in 1968, with a running time of 1 hour, 41 minutes.]This is a very funny, family-friendly movie. Yes, as a fan of old movies, I always knew that this movie was a remake of Bob Hope's 1948 classic, The Paleface. But, this movie is distinct enough from that movie that a fan could equally enjoy both. I loved this movie as a kid, and am glad that I have been able to buy it, and share it with my children, who also loved it. We all highly recommend this movie to you!"
The Shakiest Gun In The West is classic Don Knotts comedy.
Kurt A. Johnson | 12/06/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"No one can shake like Don Knotts and he is at his shaky best in this movie. For those of us that like his brand of slapstick ( and there are many of us) this movie about a ninny dentist gone West is a real treat. The scene with the line "hands run in my family" makes this movie worth the price. Yeah it's corny...I say bring on the corn !!"
Good family entertainment
Kurt A. Johnson | 03/18/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The first time through it wasn't incredibly funny, however, after we watched it 10 times or so, we began to pick up on some of the funnier details and now it is frequent topic of conversation to invoke laughter. Thanks, Don, for another good one!"
Great slap stick humor
S.F. DVD watcher | CA USA | 06/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I think this is a great Don Knotts film. He acts so utterly stupid and pathetic in this film but it's done in a way that's so utterly hillarious. I had lots of laughs all through the movie. Barbara Rhoades is the straight one in the pair and she does a great job as well. The looks on her face during the times she has to deal with Knotts are funny in themselves.If you like silly slap stick humor I think you'll enjoy this movie."
