| A lot of weather we've been having lately!
This western spoof is almost as good as "Sons of the Desert" and that's saying a mouthful. Both films are two of the funniest ever made by Hollywood. The debate amongst film buffs as to which one is better will undoubtedly go on till the demise of movies so just lean back and enjoy both of them.

While "Sons of the Desert" has the bonus of Charlie Chase adding even more mirth to the picture, "Way Out West" has two bonuses: Chill Wills and his Avalon boys who aid Stan and Ollie in two of their finest song and dance routines, and the king of the double take James Finlayson as Mickey Finn (a moniker that would have made W.C. Fields proud), who appeared in many Laurel and Hardy shorts. The talented Rosina Lawrence as Mary Roberts is also an added attraction.

Stan, Ollie, and their mule, who almost steals the show toward the end when being accidentally hoisted upstairs by a rope and pulley, are to deliver a deed for a gold mine to an orphan whose guardians are determined to steal the mine from her once they are informed unintentionally by Stanley. The slapstick and funny lines fly fast and furious throughout the 65 minutes. Even the song and dance numbers are hilarious. To read some of the best lines, note IMDb's quotes from the movie.

A friendly word of advice: Be sure and don't try using any of Ollie's pick-up lines. They don't work. For some reason cooing to a woman "a lot of weather we've been having lately" won't get you anywhere.
