Time Out says

Despite the title, the Martin and Lewis partnership was nearing breaking point on this spoof Western, a loose remake of Taurog's Rhythm on the Range, made 20 years earlier with Bing Crosby. Lewis is the especially maladroit millionaire son of a former rancher, who is persuaded to go west once again by the saddle-happy son (Martin) of his father's old partner, to regain the family seat and clean up the town. There is more singing than gunslinging, and Lewis is at his most worryingly infantile; but overall it's an amiable enough romp scripted by, of all people, bestseller Sidney Sheldon.
