Audience Reviews for McLintock!


Heavily laced through and through with The Duke's brand of jingoistic Americana, this family production is little more than a good ol'boys tailgate party, only it's out west. "You know yer a redneck when ... " The naivete is nonetheless charming.

John "The Douche" Wayne stars in a western comedy that takes place in a town full of one-dimensional, goofy characters. It's basically one "pie-fight" after another as The Douche tries to...ah who cares. Photobucket

Way more of a screwball comedy than a western, but it's great for what it is. The Duke always has a great sense of humor, I really love his over-misogynistic portrayal of G.W. Him and Maureen O'Hara always have great chemistry together and truly feel like a couple. It's got a really interesting message about relationships and gender roles that might appear obvious, but there's multiple ways you can interpret it.
