Charming Twist on Western Genre

Paul Hogan and Cuba Gooding, Jr. are hilarious in this well made spoof of men whose glory days are passing them by. It's both subtle and laugh-out-loud funny as the story of an aging gunfighter and his mute wannabe sidekick.

'Lightning Jack' pays tribute to many of our favorite Westerns - you know - the ones they don't make anymore - with great production values and sly good humor throughout. I loved it and recommend it to anyone.
