About this movie

In 1916, a young woman from the village of Santa Poco lures three out-of-work silent film stars to Mexico to help take on the ruthless El Guapo and his gang. Seizing the chance to earn much-needed cash, the amigos head south of the border, but soon discover they’ve been mistaken as their on-screen heroic characters. Starring the top comics of our time, the outrageous antics never end with these Three Amigos! Steve Martin is Lucky Day, the fast-talking leader of the bunch, Chevy Chase is Dusty Bottoms, a guitar-strumming romantic, and Martin Short is Ned Nederlander, Hollywood’s quickest sharp-shooter. From crazy mishaps to colorful musical numbers, this trio of accidental heroes elevates the Western to hilarious heights. Legendary comedy director John Landis (Animal House, Blues Brothers) serves up a fiesta of unforgettable laughs in a quotable classic that gets funnier every time you watch it.

I think it's a male plane! Some of the best one-liners ever said! Awesome comedy trio. With a cast like this you know you just can't go wrong. Very silly but a classic just the same. If you are looking for goofy comedy with some added action, look no further. I fell in love with this movie from the first time I watched it. It's been out for 33 years and there are still quotes that can't be beat. I would love for my kids to watch this movie but I would rather purchase it than rent it. Please make this available for purchase.

"For we are the three amigos" *cough cough". This is one of my favorite movies. Steve Martin is Lucky Day, the fast-talking leader of the bunch, Chevy Chase is Dusty Bottoms, a guitar-strumming romantic, and Martin Short is Ned Nederlander, Hollywood’s quickest sharp-shooter. I think their names are dumb but hey its hilarious.

For a movie that loves to play itself off as bad it is truly endearing. Some great one liners, and hilarious over acting. I started watching this when I was younger, and enjoyed it, now as an adult I can enjoy it even more because I can catch all the mature jokes that were thrown about. If you can get past the style of comedy and just let yourself go with it, you'll find that you can enjoy the movie. Also, if you never knew what a "Plethora" was before the film, you'll be dying to look it up afterwards!
