Director Blake Edwards departed from his customary sex farces to direct an unusual satirical Western comedy-thriller. In 1927, legendary lawman Wyatt Earp (James Garner) comes to Hollywood to serve as an advisor to a film studio making a movie about Earp's life. He meets silent screen cowboy star Tom Mix (Bruce Willis). The two stumble upon a murder that has apparently occurred on the set but is linked to a renowned bordello. The aging cowboy and the young actor set off on a series of time-warp misadventures to try to solve the mystery. Along the way, they encounter the shady Alfie Alperin (Malcom McDowell) and the intriguing Cheryl King (Mariel Hemingway). ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

This film is not sure if it wants to be a comedy, a mystery, or an adventure flick. Ultimately, it's not very good at any of those. It was awfully slow at the beginning and I kept waiting for the "good part" to come - but it never came. Garner and Willis do a great job, but good acting couldn't salvage the weak script.
