“Three Amigos, Hollywood, California. You are very great. 100,000 pesos. Come to Santa Poco put on show, stop. The In-famous El Guapo.”
Because of that confusing telegram The Three Amigos set out on an adventure that they honestly had no clue they were getting into. Steve Martin, Martin Short and Chevy Chase Star in this hilarious comedy about three actors put in real danger.
Who directed the film? John Landis directed and the score was done by Randy Newman.
Here is the basic plot…Three cowboy movie stars from the silent era — Dusty Bottoms (Chevy Chase), Lucky Day (Steve Martin) and Ned Nederlander (Martin Short) — are fired when one of their movies bombs. In what seems to be a career-saving offer, young Mexican woman Carmen (Patrice Martinez) offers them a high-paying gig in her village. The three jump at the opportunity, expecting to do their typical act, but Carmen believes they are really heroes and asks them to rid her village of bad guy El Guapo (Alfonso Arau).
I really enjoyed this film and found it laugh out loud funny. Steve Martin is great, I’m not really a fan of Chevy Chase, but I also like Martin Short as well. These three stumble into all kinds of trouble.
You can find the score on Amazon.
