Synopsis


Three Amigos!
This slapstick farce features Dusty Bottoms (Chevy Chase), Lucky Day (Steve Martin), and Ned Nederlander (Martin Short), as three silent movie cowboy stars who get the axe from their Hollywood studio. Just at that opportune moment, a woman named Carmen (Patrice Martinez) asks them to come to her forgotten little town south of the border and do some work for her, for a tidy sum. The three "stooges" agree, thinking they are going to perform their singing cowboy routine, but instead Carmen wants them to get rid of the nasty El Guapo (Alfonso Arau) who is running roughshod over the good citizens of the town. Not the kind of heroes they appear to be in the movies, they have a difficult time helping out the distressed townsfolk. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Fun 80’s Comedy

    I’ve known about this film for years but saw it for the first time recently when I purchased it on Black Friday. The $1.99 price tag was too good to resist. Not my favorite John Landis movie (Coming To America is) but it is enjoyable and harkens back to a time when family comedies weren’t as corny as the ones you’ll see today. The highlight to me had to be the Blue Shadows scene. Even though it’s a musical number scene, it was quite heartwarming and really gets to the heart of what the film is- a nice, friendly film the whole family can watch and enjoy.

    Classic comedy gold

    Three Amigos is, at this point, a classic comedy movie, in the hallowed grouping of films such as Blazing Saddles and Ghostbusters. The three lead actors are comedic geniuses in their own right, and seeing them working together here, for a greater effect, is gold. The plot is fairly silly, but you don't watch this kind of movie for plot, do you? The fact that Martin, Chase, and Short are each given time to hit the notes and shine creates a symphony of laughter. If you like good, solid comedy, (not what passes for comedy today, I.e., crudeness) this is a movie to watch again and again.

    Watched this movie first as a child. I had completely forgot about it until i saw a reel on Martin Shorts career. I was instantly reminded of how great the movie was and the awesome thing is that this comedy holds up to the test of time. There are many comedies that are so niche comedies that only a certain group of people for a certain time will find them funny. This transends that and is still as funny as when I saw it as a child. Great movie.

    What a Great Comedy!

    'Three Amigos' is one of my all-time favoite comedies, and I never tire of watching it. Just hilarious entertainment featuring top-notch performances by the entire cast. The dvd is non-anamorphic, but it is widescreen, which is actually more than I expected for this film. However, I would love to see a special edition for this film with some really good bonus features, as this disc has none.

    A bargain bin find

    This was a bargain bin find for $3.99. I remembered enjoying the film when it first came out and I find that it's just as funny now. The director John Landis has had a troubled career but his comedies, like this one, just as his superb thriller "Into the Night" seem to be unjustly neglected and underrated.

    Entertaining for a first time viewer

    Having never watched this movie before, I found it to be entertaining. It had the corniness to be expected of an 80s movie. There were some laugh out loud moments. However, there were also several jokes that fell flat, and all of the main actors have done better in other films. Overall, it was good.

    One of the funniest movies ever

    Used to watch this with my dad growing up. It was a flop amazingly when it came out but now its sort of a cult classic. And probably the funniest movie either of the three leads ever made and that's quite a filmography to pick from. And you'll learn new words like plethora. Do you know what a plethora is?

    "For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us." This is a great movie for those who lived through the 80s and also those who did not.
