Big films tackled by little people
what did you think about the film?
it was really funny and so i liked it. the characters were goofing around and being stupid.
what did you think the film was going to be about?
i didn’t think it was going to be very funny at first, because the cover of the DVD didn’t really look funny. But when i heard the song [The Ballad Of The
Three Amigos], i realised it was going to be funny. When they did the, “aaaaaaaaaah,” bit for a really long time, it absolutely drove me nuts!
who was your favourite member of the three amigos?
i thought they were all really funny and silly. But my favourite one was probably the amigo with the guitar, Dusty Bottoms [Chevy Chase], because when he plays the guitar in the desert, all the creatures come along to see what’s going on. like, an owl turns up! and then a tortoise says, “Goodnight ned!”
was that your favourite part?
no. i think the bit i liked best was probably when… they were all good, but when Dusty shoots the invisible swordsman. Because you don’t expect him to be stood right beside them, but he’s invisible! then he falls — Plonk! — in the sand!
Did you have a least favourite bit?
not really, actually. Everything made me laugh.
who should watch this movie?
Whoever reads this! You should watch it!
what star rating would you give it, out of five?
a million! or five, because it’s so funny. i just have to give it five!
