Product Description

Amazon.ca

This curiosity from the mid-1970s is breathtaking in its dreadfulness. Directed by Hal Needham, this was an attempt at creating a Roadrunner cartoon with live actors--except that instead of a live actor they got Arnold Schwarzenegger, before Hollywood smoothed his rough edges (and his Austrian accent). He plays the invulnerable sheriff who rides blithely through life, unaware that the evil Kirk Douglas wants to kill him and kidnap his squeeze, Ann-Margret. The stunts are cartoony without being funny and Schwarzenegger shows exactly why he was known as "the Austrian Oak." Douglas works extra hard but effort alone isn't enough to elevate this script. --Marshall Fine

3.0 out of 5 stars much like a cartoon July 10 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
VERY VERY SILLY, much like a cartoon, but that is what we bought it for. No the best acting from any of the characters, but it was a funny movie to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A live Road Runner cartoon Nov. 18 2013
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film actually has a good story as Miss Charming Jones (Ann-Margret) in pretty good shape) is sent to the bank to get money for here fathered to keep his half of the mine operating. Prickly oops Cactus Jack is hired to retrieve the movie before it can be delivered; however jack has plans of his own. Cactus is supported by his trusty steed, Whisky; Whisky has his own since of humor. Protecting Miss Charming is Handsome Stranger (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who is sort of a Boy Scout character. He even helps Damsel in Distress (Ruth Buzzi) to cross the street.

This movie is packed with every know character actor of the time and Mel Tillis. See how many you recognize.

There are lots on one line jokes and jokes older than the hills. Also see how many Road Runner skits you can find. I was disappointed to find that Cactus Jack did not get his equipment form Acme. My favorite part right after the scene where Ann-Margret leans over and says hold these, is the one from chapter six the fake tunnel in the rock; you could see that coming a mile away. They did it anyway. No sense of shame.

A fantastic comedy! It is a shame how few people know this movie. Everyone that I have shown it to loves it. The coyote and roadrunner antics will have you laughing from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Westerns gone roadrunner,,,!!! April 13 2013
By Big Bill TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here are major stars doing Hal Needham comedy, Kirk Douglas (!!) is the totally useless bad guy ( think whyly coyotye ) ,
good grief , Arnold Sw ( Cal Gov ) is " Handsome Stranger " No really , that's his name. Ann Margret plays the
female cleavage ( gowns by Bob Mack ) . Total burlesque!~!!! Stunts aplenty!!! Westerns played for laughs -
not quite " Blazing Saddles " but close, and well worth a look. !!!!! Rating 5 !'s

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun surprise Aug. 19 2011
By Mree
Format:VHS Tape
My husband and I watched The Villian the other day out of curiousity and we were pleasantly surprised with how much fun it was. There were plenty of laughs and then it kind of just ended. I love the whole idea of Arnold as Handsome Stranger, Paul Lynde as the Indian chief and Ann Margaret as the super sexy, beautifully dressed, hot to trot young woman. If only Mel Brooks would've had a chance to co-write this movie, it could have been a classic like Blazing Saddles. It just didn't have enough funny stuff, it was short on story and it didn't have an ending. I thought it was still worth watching and a lot of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars an all time favorite March 13 2004
Format:DVD
This is one of my most favorite movies. It actually is a family favorite. We made our original "beta" copy when it 1st appeared on cable in the early "70's-. Arnold, Mel Tillis- Ann Margaret, Ruth Buzzy-- Kirk Douglas - (he was amazing) Paul Lynn- Who am I missing-- Oh yeah the horse Whiskey - and road runner- This was hilarious in the 70's and still is. - As we showed it to all of our friends in the 70's-- we present it to all of our friends now- every one must see "The Villain" over and over and over.- cant get enough of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alas, pan -n- scan July 9 2003
Format:DVD
I first saw the movie years ago and thought it was hysterical. Sadly this release crops the movie -- if it were widescreen I would buy it in a heartbeat.
5 stars for the movie, -2 for poor DVD.
