| Cute for Conway fans
"The Longshot" is the story of four losers who get what they think is the break of a lifetime. A tip on a horse that can't lose. So they scrape every penny they can together to make a bet on the title's longshot.

That's about all there is to this film. It is said that Conway wrote the script in 24 hours. It shows. It plays more like a group of skits from "The Carol Burnett Show" then a movie with such a thin plot line. But for fans of Tim Conway (especially) it has its amusing moments. Stella Stevens offers a little support in a throw away role but looks sexy enough to be memorable. If you have time to waste and need a few chuckles then you could do worse.
