Movie Info

In this comic western, Flagg (Robert Mitchum) is a veteran marshal forced to retire by the pompous Mayor Wilker (Martin Balsam). McKay (George Kennedy) is a wily gunslinger. The two combine forces to stop a young band of outlaws from robbing the train when it pulls into the station. Flagg warns the mayor of the upcoming attempt but is not taken seriously by the town politician. McKay and Flagg ride out to warn the train of the impending crime, which finds McKay facing members of his own gang in a traditional western showdown. David and John Carradine appear in this feature along with Tina Louise and Lois Nettleton.

Critic Reviews for Good Guys and the Bad Guys

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Most of these movies (including Good Guys) haven't been very good, but Mitchum has almost always been good in them.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There are, in this film, quite a few visual and thematic references to its betters -- notably High Noon and Ride the High County -- but they only emphasize the witlessness of the script, the slackness of the acting and the tired... direction.

Leaden tongue-in-cheek comical western.

June 15, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

a meaningless and harmless bit of flatulence that caused barely a ripple of interest in 1969

March 30, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

OK Burt Kennedy oater featuring Mitchum and Kennedy in leads.

February 18, 2008 | Rating: 3/5

It's clear that everybody involved with the production had a great time making it, but that simply doesn't disguise the film's inherently superfluous nature.
