something big

Andrew V McLaglen (1971)

PG Certificate


Our Score
The only other movie title alongside Tom Thumb, to insist on lower case lettering in its original publicity - only apt because this tasteless, would-be comedy western is very lower case indeed. Dean Martin enjoys his post-Matt Helm stardom by offering such a perilously lazy performance against veteran stalwarts Brian Keith and Ben Johnson, that you just want to shut your eyes and nod off. If you did, you'd miss fashionable British imports Carol White and Honor Blackman, but little else.


A Cavalry colonel on the verge of retirement has one last battle with his long-time bandit enemy. Comedy Western, starring Dean Martin, Honor Blackman, Brian Keith and Ben Johnson.
