RUSTLERS' RHAPSODY (Theatrical Release USA 1985)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Rustlers' Rhapsody—adult themed—orients its unusual humor around some sexual references and plays itself out by capturing the triteness that define the western movie except this movie’s protagonist isn’t present to lead the war against evil but merely finds himself in the middle of a story and runs along with the story as it presents itself. Tom Berenger and G.W. Bailey are exceptionally well cast for this story. However, the choice of Andy Griffith as the antagonist is a difficult pill the casting department asks the audience to swallow. The supporting cast for the main antagonist have been chosen well.
