5.0 out of 5 stars The Search Has Ended! Dec 22 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I had been looking for a copy of this video for years. I had first viewed this movie while I was in high school and it was a movie made for TV. It is probably the funniest movie I have ever watched. When I watched it again, I was laughing so hard, I fell off the couch! My daughter enjoyed watching it, and so have all of the people who have watched it. I am now waiting for this to come out on DVD, so that I can buy another copy, in case my VHS doesn't get returned or simply wears out.
This movie was made in a time when family-viewing films were more common. I would place it into the same category of many of the Disney films of the era.
A gunfighter is attempting to reform himself for the love of his life. The Evil Roy Slade trys real, real hard to become a member of society. My favorite scenes are when he becomes a shoe salesman. People working with the buying public will understand his frustration with the customers.
Again, a wonderful, funny look at life for the entire family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Western Parody! May 3 2002
Format:VHS Tape
To the uninitiated this film may seem a bit dated--after all it's a made-for-TV film from the early '70s, how good can it be? In this case, outstanding! I was a senior in high school when I saw "Evil Roy Slade" in its debut on NBC in the Spring of 1972. Coming just as "Monty Python" was beginning to be aired in the U.S. and before Mel Brooks hit the screen with "Blazing Saddles" ('73) and "Young Frankenstein" ('74) there had been little of this sort of zany humor since the days of Ernie Kovacs. And as a TV flick, it had to stay within the bounds of what was then proper without the language and sexual innuendo which the Python crew and Brooks could play for admittedly hysterical--but crude and non-family-friendly laughs. The numerous great lines ("9 to 5 job? The only job I like is 9 men, robbin' 5!")and John Astin's creation of "Evil Roy" and Dick Shawn's "Bing Bell" took on a life of their own among my friends and I back then. Last week my two sons (10 and 8) and I watched the film for the first time--and the same thing has happened: "Is that the door?" "key-chonk-a-tonk," "See my new doll house," and "Cain't walk without mah guns!" are part of our daily banter now. A great comedy, ahead of its time, that you can actually view with your kids!

3.0 out of 5 stars Roy memories May 7 2012

How time flies. We remember so many scenes and catch phrases, but seeing the movie again is not as good as our memories. However, still a nice time to pass time.

I never saw this when it came out, and came across it only when amazon recommended it based on similar purchases.
A screwball comedy; I have had to stop the show at points when I'm laughing too hard to follow along.
Watching young Evil Roy Slade chewing on his bunny gets me every time.
Just good fun. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars How the West was Wonderful June 21 2009
Format:DVD
I love films. Of all the films I love, this is one of the films I love best.

The cast is amazing and the script is hilarious. I watch it over and over and laugh every time. For a western parody about a gunslinger, it has a tremendous amount of heart.

The wonderful John Astin is at his best here, and yes, I'm also an Addams Family and Brisco County Jr. fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...So he grew up loving nobody May 24 2006
Format:VHS Tape
A bit outdated, but it still has its moments. John Astin's portrayal of an ill-temepered,dimwitted outlaw is perfect. If you enjoyed Blazing Saddles, I recommend you see what started western parodies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Western Parody June 16 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Evil Roy Slade is a decent parody of Westerns. Evil Roy is literally a truly evil villain so much so that as a baby he was spurned by both Indians and wolves alike and wound up being raised by vultures.
Evil Roy Slade ranks 4 out of 5 stars because while the movie is funny, it is also overly goofy and quite implausible overall. It is also predictable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatness March 10 2002
By JONES
Format:VHS Tape
Evil Roy is simply greatness. I first saw the film in the 70's and like many of the other reviewers, my close friend and I would scour the TV listings every week trying to find when it was coming on again. For years we hardly ever had a conversation that someone wouldn't insert at least one SLADE quote. The movie obviously achieved cult status but it seemed it never became known to the true masses. After college I went to work for the Federal Reserve and met people from all across the U.S. One day in casual conversation I dropped a Slade quote and this girl from Chicago reached in her purse and produced an EVIL ROY SLADE fan club card (they started the club at her college back home). My fifteen minutes of fame came when I actually got to personally speak (albeit via the telephone) to Evil Roy when he came to Dallas to promote the Adams Family release. It was a call-in talk show and the first three callers all wanted to speak to Evil Roy Slade not Gomez Adams. Although I think everyone would agree we all liked Gomez, EVIL ROY is true greatness.
