This is a reasonable movie for the gendre - a 'comedy' western. Just the thing for a casual evening viewing.

I just recently watched this movie on YouTube in 10 parts. What a fun picture. This is Dean's most lovable part of all the movies he's made. Please watch it and rate it. If you don't agree with me, I'll be surprised. The theme song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David is wonderful. It was sung by Mark Lindsey of Paul Revere and the Raiders fame. There is a cute dog who rides in the saddle with Dean. Brian Keith is great too. There are lots of funny lines. Then there is the sex girls who Brian Keith runs into. Dean is so vulnerable in this picture, which is unusual for him. Dean says he is confused about all the things he as to worry about. It's giving him a headache!
While stationed in Thailand in 1972 during the Vietnam War, I had an opportunity to get a part-time job operating a movie projector at the base theater for the midnight show. One of the films I was fortunate to show was "Somthing Big", a rowdy, unpretentious western with a fun and talented cast headed by Dean Martin, Brian Keith, Albert Salmi and Honor Blackman. The film's strongest point is that it didn't take itself too seriously, yet still presented a fine array of subplots and character studies that nicely wove themselves together to a rousing finale. What has stuck out most in my mind for over the past 30+ years, however, was the movie's theme song. Like the film itself, the title song was a joyous and melodic tribute to the desire in everyone to reach for that star in the heavens, or that impossible dream. It is disappointing that the film never made it to VHS or DVD. If it ever shows up on cable TV, don't miss an opportunity to see this lost guilty pleasure.
