VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) Mel Brooks in one scene as an Indian Chief speaking Yiddish.
2) Few good racist jokes

 
CONS –
1) Cleavon Little as Sheriff Bart – not the funniest actor to play the lead.
2) Unlike Airplane! (1980), this slapstick comedy does not stand the test of time.

 
QUOTE –
Bart: Well, can’t you see that’s the last act of a desperate man?
Howard Johnson: We don’t care if it’s the first act of “Henry V” .
