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 an... read more

Cat(herine) Balou's family farm is being threatened by the Rail Road. She sends for Kid Shelleen, finding him to be the drunkest gunfighter in the west. When her father is killed by the rail road magnate's gunman, she vowes to fight on. Shelleen manages to ride sideways in several scenes, while minstrels sing the ballad of Cat Ballou in between scenes.

"9.8. 2019 "Cat Ballou" is a western comedy that promises more than it delivers. The main character, played by beautiful and talented Jane Fonda, is a schoolteacher who becomes a determined avenger after her father gets killed by a vicious scoundrel. Nowadays it's difficult to understand why this film was an any kind of success when it was released. Most of the jokes are just recycled standard stuff and the movie feels a bit aimless at times."
