...Jack Nicholson playing Gabby Hayes is interesting, even amusing....Cameraman Nestor Almendros' work is excellent...
Goin' South is the most flat-footed comedy to collapse on the screen since Nickelodeon. Full Review
Nicholson's second film as director, a wonderfully beguiling Western... Full Review
Jack Nicholson playing Gabby Hayes is interesting, even amusing at times, but Hayes was never a leading man, which Goin' South desperately needs. Full Review
A waste of time. One to avoid - especially if you're a fan of the frequently spectacular Jack Nicholson. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Jack Nicholson is hilarious in this underrated comedy Western.
Rating: 76/100 -- With the Nicholson signature, it keeps on rolling, at least for the first hour and change before the story moves in the wrong direction.
Jack Nicholson directs and stars as a downtrodden outlaw who finds a loophole that lets him evade the gallows by slipping a wedding ring on a lonely spinster (Mary Steenburgen). Not much for the married life, he is then forced to work on her gold mine as he dreams of escaping to Mexico. This bawdy western comedy marked the screen debut of Steenburgen and features John Belushi and Christopher Lloyd in hilarious supporting turns as corrupt deputies.
