"Who cares if this movie is going nowhere like some complain. Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra give a lot of laughs and Ursalla Andress and Anita Ekberg are perfect partners for them. The rest of the cast make the movie something different that usual western spoofs. You get two semi-good guys, two bad baddies, and an assortment of others plus a cameo by the Three Stooges. What more can you want. The good guys win in the end, the gals get the guys, and everyone lives happily ever after. It's great. No social message or deep plot, just pure enjoyment for some of us lighter hearted movie buffs."

"Well Sinatra and Martin are classy and funny, the ladies are sexy, the supporting cast generates laughs and we even get the three stooges for good measure doing their classic TEXAS skit.this is no movie classic but it is a fun picture that doesn't take itself too seriously. In that vein you will enjoy it."

"I just watched this movie earlier today and I really loved it. I think this was a thousand times better than the last Sinatra film I saw-that crapola flick "The Manchurian Candidate." The scenes between him and Dean Martin are a riot. Speaking of that, there's a moment in the film's climax where The King of Cool and The Prince of Cool are fighting each other and I couldn't stop giggling. Boy I tell you, that fight scene was more enjoyable than Ol' Blue Eyes fighting Henry Silva in "The Manchurian Candidate" (talk about a mismatch in that one). Also, what can you say about Ursula Andress? How about one of the most sexy foreign actresses in cinema history? Also, Anita Ekberg co-stars (hard to believe this was the same woman who was in the fountain in "La Dolce Vita") as Sinatra's love interest and in a brillant move, Charles Bronson as the gunfighter who tries to nab Frank and Dean (this came in-between the westerns he was in like THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST). As that weren't enough The Three Stooges and Arthur Godfrey have walk-on roles. The film was directed by Robert Aldrich; and it was the follow-up to what I think is his signature film-"Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" As what the description to this DVD says at the end to best sum up this movie: 'You will have a blast.'"
4 For Texas 1963

"Frank Sinatra (1915-1998) and Dean Martin (1917-1995) play wily Business rivals in this wild West lark og gambling and romance . It?s 4 for Texas as the two sars joined by Busty Swedish Anita Ekberg (1931- ) (measurements: 40-22-36 in 1950) and Ursula Andress (1936- ) , vie for oneupmanship at the card tables of 1870s Galverston .The cards hold a lot more fun when the film?s many talented co-stars join in . The three stonges turn up in a trademark slapstick sketch . Preening Victor Buono (1938-1982) is the most deviius , double-crossing villain this side Snidely Whiplash . And Charles Bronson (1921-2003) is rattlesnake-mean gunslinger with a nasty habit of absorbing more lead than he dishes out . At center stagecoach shootout to final riverboat melee , pals Sinatra and Martin clearly have a blast , So will you . High Quality digital transfer ."

"Three stars, for Four for Texas. Bet your wondering, What the heck is this movie? Well its one of those films with big stars in an average film, with colorful characters. Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra go head to head as enemies wanting the same thing: a hundred thousand dollars. Not much happens really, mostly just butting heads. But as enemies they do each other justice, by simply being on the screen for two hours. Even though there is little gun-play, the best thing about Four for Texas is the humor. Mostly dry stuff that just seems to work. I particularly liked the bumbling emecile banker that always seems to be both looking for a sandwich, and a quick fix for his "intestinal fortitude" problem. ~S.A.O.S.~"
