laughably good natured
Supposedly when " Jesse James" first opened back in the late thirties, one of his family members attended and was asked about the accuracy of the movie. She evidently said something to the effect of "Well he was named Jesse and he rode a horse, other than that it was entirely fiction." Not an exact quote, but the gist.

This movie is about the same, nothing exceptional and very,very silly. Guess what? If you don't take it too seriously, or rather if you understand that it is hardly meant to be taken seriously, you might actually have an enjoyable couple of hours.

For real western movies, see just about anything else, just about anything with Wayne, Jimmy Stewart in his western phase, or Clint Eastwood. The pretty boy actors here don't have much talent, but they're funny in their own way. It's kind of like "Dawson's Creek" with horses and explosions.

For a real movie about the James-Younger gang, take in "The Long Riders", it's generally historically accurate and well done.

It's nice to see westerns done in this day and age with computer generated effects and such, so if you take it for what it is, American Outlaws is a smile or two.
