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.
