Time Out says

Already Hollywood has-beens by 1916, a trio of Western serial stars (Martin, Chase and Short) receive a cable offering them muchos pesos to strut their stuff in a Mexican village. Little do they know that they are expected to take on the forces of a vicious bandit (Arau) terrorising the village. Western spoofs are never notable for original plots, and this is no exception. Nevertheless, it revels in the cornball clichés of the low-budget oater, and benefits from amiably innocent performances. The characterisation is paper thin, and Landis' timing as sloppy as ever; but if you enjoy brainless slapstick that allows space for irrelvant absurdities like a singing bush and an invisible swordsman, it's entertaining enough.
