  1. Rick, go watch Blazing Saddles right now! (if you haven’t since recording this episode). Then, go back and get a shitload of dimes. Anyway, IMHO Shanghai Noon belongs on the list of western comedies for sure.

    • I put it on our Amazon wishlist. I just have to convince Heather to watch it. She isn’t always into older movies. Shanghai Noon is a good one. We’ll have to mention it in a future Western episode.

  2. I would say at the very least it doesn’t watch like an old movie. Worth it!
