Three Amigos

Three Amigos (1986)

Plot summary

(4 votes)

Three actors get fired by their production company for asking to be paid. A young woman from a small village called Santa Polco sees one of their movies and thinks they are real heroes so she sends them a vague telegram in hopes of getting them to come to Santa Polco and ward off the infamous El Guapo, who has been torturing their town and stealing their booze. The amigos go to Santa Polco expecting to put on a show, but instead find out it's real, decide they do want to be real heroes, and later help the town stop El Guapo and his men from ever torchuring them again.

Continuity mistake: When the Amigos are deciding to "be the three amigos for real", Dusty is the last one to agree. Before approaching the other two, he grabs for his gun and it discharges, hitting the ground with the shot. Glass is then heard shattering in the distance. At this point, Dusty had not decided to be a "real Amigo", so his gun would either be loaded with blanks or unloaded, not loaded with live rounds yet.
