 If you can deal with the more comedic style spaghetti-westerns this one is pretty decent.  Bud Spencer, who as far as I can tell was the king of these slapsticky type westerns after making those TRINITY movies along with Terrence Hill, stars here as a guy who ends up having to take care of a little boy whose uncle is shot and killed.  Now in most Eurotrash movies little boys are horrifically annoying and this kid here is a bit of a smart ass but not gratingly awful like many.  Hijinks ensue and many heads are bonked in the trademark Spencer head-bonking fashion.  A big added bonus here is Jack Palance as a pimp.  I think he just pimps showgirls but I'm not sure of the overlay in the showgirl/prostitute professions in old western times.  They're just shown here being  overly affectionate showgirls since this movie was rated PG but I'll still count Palance as a pimp since he seems noticeably extra-sleazy.  One weird thing about his character is sometimes he speaks with a Mexican accent and other times he's just talking like regular old Jack Palance.  There's also a town-crazy who eats dirt looking for oil.  I have my doubts about the accuracy of this method but it makes for some strange scenes.  Overall a decent time-waster and a good way to pass the time after a stupid hurricane knocks out your internet connections. 

I guess in Germany this is called THE DICK IN MEXICO:
