| Nice Story; Just Lacked Humor
This pilot for a short-lived TV series had a likable cast and was a nice story...but nothing that memorable to warrant a second viewing. Perhaps that's why it only lasted a year on TV. It's clean, language-wise, with just some damns and hells, so anyone of any age could safely watch it.

Chad Everett's character, "Wyatt Earp III," does it all in this movie - in one day, too! He saves the honor of people, thwarts bank robbers, stops wife abusers, saves animals and probably more good deeds that I forgot.

My major complaint was that it just wasn't as humorous as advertised. That goes for Jim Varney, too, a guy that usually makes me laugh, but he didn't do that in this film. The character wasn't as entertaining as Varney's "Ernest" and other characters.

What's good to see is a father-son relationship as pictured here, where each respects each other. It's a nice film and I'm sorry it didn't succeed.
