An average movie

Since I have a huge weak spot for Jane Fonda, I was definitely eager to check this flick. I'm not a huge fan of Westerns in general but I always enjoy a good Western from time to time but, honestly, it wasn't one of them. I mean, Jane Fonda was really charming, as usual, and she tries really hard to make her character appealing but it didn't work, I'm afraid. I know, it is just a Western comedy and I shouldn't take it too serioualy but I thought it was one of the most boring and idiotic Westerns I have ever seen. I mean, it wasn't really bad, I'll give you that, but it wasn't entertaining either. The worst thing, the most frustrating thing, was that Lee Marvin eventually won an oscar for his supporting part. He wasn't really bad and he actually gave a decent performance but, from all the characters he has portrayed during his impressive career, was it really the one which should have been rewarded?! I don't think so .... Furthermore, I think it is a good idea to make Westerns with a female main character, I haven't seen many of those, but they should provide a more interesting plot than this. To conclude, I thought the whole thing was really disappointing and it is not really worth a look, in my opinion.
