One of the worst films ever, Richard Lewis is anything but funny and neither is the script. This is hardly anything on the scale of Blazing Saddles, it should have been scrapped.

Anything with John Candy in it has to be funny, and this is hilarious.

"Now, I'm aware of the fact that there are a multitude of reviewers who called this movie "contrived" and "tiresome," even "lame" in some instances. True it is that the sad event of the death of John Candy during filming does not justify the film as worth your hard-earned American or Canadian dollars. However, there is a light in the movie shining through the dust left by the weak jokes and overdone western hijinx: young Vancouver native Derek Senft in the role of Jeremiah Taylor. Senft delivers a performance on par with those of Anna Paquin in The Piano and Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. Any child who has lived in the west and is forced to move back east could find inspiration in the young boy's perseverance, wonderful attitude, and love for his family, especially those moving in a horse-drawn wagon or its modern counterpart, the station wagon.In conclusion, I advise you to rent or buy this movie. Put it in your VCR, press play, and then immediately press fast forward. As soon as you see the shining smile and auburn hair of the young actor Senft, however, release the button, and revel in one of the finest acting performances by a Canadian boy from the 20th century."

"A hand full of citizens of various occupations and orientations realize the west is not all it is cracked up to be. They decide to go back east, but to do this they will need a skilled and knowledgeable wagon master. Who should stumble in but the best wagon master in the west, James H. Harlow (John Candy). Naturally there is a money grubbing cabal apposed to this move and they will stop at nothing to throat the "Wagons East" plan.
Well designed with a select group of actors that never overplayed their parts. The consumes and scenes here exceptionally good for the comedy. The Indians look like Indians and the floozies look floozy. The film is jam packed with one liners.

"...This is one funny movie. This is not a movie where a sterling acting performance convinces you that an actor is a different person, or where some fundamental truth aboot human nature is revealed. This is a movie where you laugh your [head] off because of dialog about moccasins, quitters, and big. . . fat. . . books. And if the scene with the insanely effiminate bookstore owner is revealed to be a hardcore bad [dude] doesn't just slay you then you have deep issues. This is one of the great sleeper movies of the 90s'."
