When a small Mexican village is terrorised by a notorious outlaw, a desperate senorita calls upon the only heroes she knows: the legendary Three Amigos! Known by all as fearless freedom fighters, these courageous cowboys are really just film stars and the only fighting they have done is on the movie set!But when the outlaws attack, the Amigos discover that the banditos and their bullets are real. Now the trio must save the village and become true heroes...or hang up their spurs in shame forever.
Utterly ludicrous and just as brilliant

The credits should really tell you all you need to know here, Starring Chevy Chase, Steve Martin and Martin Short, Directed by John Landis, Written by Lorne Michaels, Steve Martin and Randy Newman. Anybody with a passing knowledge of 80's American comedy will know exactly what this film is going to be like.
The jokes, gags and the slapstick are all non-stop with the three leads revelling in the freedom the roles allow. There is nothing big nor clever about anything in this film, but it's hilarious nevertheless. If you like anything from the filmographies of any of the people I've mentioned above, there's a good chance you'll have a ball with Three Amigos.
