Bruce Willis (Tom Mix), James Garner (Wyatt Earp), Malcolm McDowell (Alfie Alperin), Mariel Hemingway (Cheryl King), Kathleen Quinlan (Nancy Shoemaker)

On a Hollywood film set where a biopic is being made about his life, Wyatt Earp teams up with movie star cowboy Tom Mix to solve a murder.
This whodunit comedy misfires aplenty, mostly due to a poor script, lazy direction and a couple of poor performances. It captures the period of the early 20th century quite well, but isn't really worth watching with that alone to recommend it.
4/10
