(1 vote)

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: In one scene, Steve Martin is shot in the arm and bleeds, but when the trio return after the riot the wound has disappeared.

Jefe: I have put many beautiful pinatas in the storeroom, each of them filled with little suprises.
El Guapo: Many pinatas?
Jefe: Oh yes, many!
El Guapo: Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?
Jefe: A what?
El Guapo: A *plethora*.
Jefe: Oh yes, you have a plethora.
El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
Jefe: Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?
