Although a comedy rife in lively characters, Wagons East! affords star John Candy one of the poorest, drabest, and thoroughly unfunniest roles of his career. Full Review
South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Rating: 1.5/4 -- With credits that include such garbage as Hot Dog... The Movie, director and former hockey player Peter Markle displays an utter lack of comic sensibility. Full Review
A stridently unfunny western comedy that is equally lame in its writing and direction. Full Review
Rating: 1.5/5 -- A typically rickety vehicle, just dumb enough that it actually submerges Candy's sweet, perky persona in what's basically a sullen, grizzled straight-man role. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 1/4 -- [An] anemic Blazing Saddles-wannabe. Full Review
Rating: 1/4 -- The jokes here sound a lot funnier than they play. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- This forgettable comedy western is quite dreadful. Full Review
There's little to praise in Peter Markle's handling of Matthew Carlson's heavy-handed screenplay. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
A group of not-so-rough-and-tumble frontierspeople decide they've had enough of the west and hire a broken-down wagonmaster to lead them back east to civilization. This western farce features John Candy's final performance.
A band of Old West pioneers decide that they've had enough of these Californian troubles -- no more robbers, no more drunks, no more rustlers -- and hire the bumbling, alcoholic James Harlow to take them back east as soon as possible.
