Overview

An amusing spoof of the good 'ole westerns back in the halcyon days when all the cliches were held up as icons, this parody by Hugh Wilson works best for savvy audiences. Rex O'Herlihan (Tom Berenger) is a singing cowboy with a wardrobe straight out of the Hollywood westerns of the '40s -- he worships his horse, and has a trusty sidekick too. Every town he wanders into has a sheriff on the dole, a shady cattle rancher, a prostitute with a heart of gold, an innocent young damsel, a town drunk, and the standard bad guys in black hats and long coats (Spaghetti-western style) who brutalize the poor sheep ranchers. After setting things straight in each identical town as he goes, Rex is beginning to feel like a re-run junky when he saunters into a town that is slightly different -- and the parodies continue.

Rustlers' Rhapsody 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

When you need a day of laughter this is the movie for you! In the style of old Gene Autry films, Tom Berrenger, as the innocent wide-eyed hero, and Andy Griffith, as the 'bad guy,' are delightful. It's a fast moving western with tremendous sight gags and sound bites. Highly recommended!

One of the top 10 funniest movies of all time. Great spoof of the '50's westerns.

Much like Leslie Neilson's films.... but this one is just hilarious! John Wayne's son plays a lead role at the end.

Rhapsody is an amazing film which has a large after-market following. The symbolism and foreshadowing in the film are reminesent of ''Citizen Cane''. The use of cliche and the parody of costume is brillant.
