      Time Out The traditional ingredients of homely moralising, sentimentality and raucous slapstick are used sparingly, the dialogue is fairly bright, some visual gags are neatly executed. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Richard Eder New York Times Walt Disney started by making movies in which animated drawings played the parts of people or animals who stood for people. Later he turned to making movies in which people or animals play the parts of animated drawings. Rated: 2/5 May 9, 2005 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Everytime I see one of these antiseptic Disney films, I'm reminded of the thrills and genuine artistry that went into the studio's films during its golden age in the 1940s and 1950s. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Heather Boerner Common Sense Media Rollicking Old West ride lassos some stereotypes. Rated: 4/5 Dec 18, 2010 Full Review TV Guide A delightful cast of character actors helps the childish story, with Conway and Knotts beginning what would become a somewhat famous, but very simple-minded, film comedy duo. Rated: 2/4 Mar 10, 2009 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 14, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

The greatest 01 hour: and 40 minutes ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Don knotts and Tim Conway knock this film out of the park Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Liam D It's an entertaining big studio western with shenanigans by Don Knotts (Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night, The Last Time I Saw Archie) and Tim Conway (Speed 2: Cruise Control, Cannonball Run II) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/22 Full Review Audience Member While searching for other movies on this list, the thumbnail for this movie came up often on Disney+. So I had already seen that Don Knotts and Tim Conway were starring in this movie and I was looking forward to it just because of that. It didn't disappoint. One scene involving fire had me laughing out loud for quite awhile. Bill Bixby and Susan Clark play the leads and their eventual love story worked well for me. My biggest complaint about this era of Disney movies are the children characters, they are in the movie to be cute and that is it. This movie is no different as Stacy Manning plays a little girl with her two bigger brothers. She is supposed to be the cute one, but she does it so well, presumably without even trying, that she is beyond cute and is absolutely adorable! The theme song to the movie, "The Apple Dumpling Gang", is also really enjoyable and catchy. I'd say this movie is a must watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
