The Reviews for Something Big (1971) 720p


Ironically nothing big happens in the film!Reviewed bySpikeopathVote: 3/10

Something Big is directed by Andrew V. McLagen and written by James Lee Barrett. It stars Dean Martin, Brian Keith, Carol White, Honor Blackman, Albert Salmi and Ben Johnson. Music is by Marvin Hamlisch (title song by Burt Bacharach) and cinematography by Harry Stradling Junior.

Dull as dishwater, Something Big is the very definition of a star vehicle where the star sleepwalks for the paycheck. The plot for what it's worth has Martin as Joe Baker, an ageing bandit wanting to do something big before retirement. He strikes a deal with Jonny Cobb (Salmi), to exchange a Gatling Gun for a woman, you see Cobb just wants to get laid, apparently. With Joe's fiancée on her way to the Territory to make an honest man of him, and Colonel Morgan (Keith) determined to stop Joe achieving his criminal ambition before he himself retires, Joe has it all to do to do that something big.

What follows in the one hour and forty five minute run time is, well, nothing of any note. There are a whole raft of characters in the mix, and a dog, but they never serve any purpose other than being dressage or to deliver some unfunny dialogue. The intention is to make Martin's lovable scallywag the axis for some mature daft shenanigans, building to the "big" finale before everyone settles down in the sun and shouts hooray! But Martin isn't interested, and McLaglen isn't clever enough to knit all the loose ends together. While the "big" finale consists of a five minute boring shoot-out that is essentially just Martin going around in a circle firing the Gatling Gun at bad guys we have not met, seen or had time to be intrigued about.

Some nice costumes, cleavage and Technicolor photography stop it from total damnation, but this is only recommended to easy going Western fans who simply have no other genre choices to pick from in their nuclear fall out shelter. 3/10

Film locationReviewed byhawk-48Vote: 7/10

Sorry markspangler1, but the location wasn't the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, it was filmed just outside Durango, Mexico where lots of western films have been made. Beautiful scenery, mountains and plains, deep blue skies unmarked by jet contrails or fences. Through a chance meeting with Hal Needham, Stunt Coordinator and stunt double for Dean Martin, I was invited on the set during filming. I've always wondered at why it wasn't a more popular film. Great actors, great director in big Andrew McLaglen (the man is BIG!) great scenery and cinematography. My biggest regret was not being on the set when Ben Johnson was on location. Just missed him. He was always one of my favorite actors. Authentic, unpretentious and believable in all his roles. Dean is funny and the dog a real trooper. See this movie if you can.

Dean Martin and his little dog stole the show!Reviewed byLindy-11Vote: 10/10

I loved this movie when it came out! Dean Martin made a suave cowboy. I loved the comedy lines all throughout the movie. Don Knight did a great straight man to Dean's comedic one. But Dean Martin and his little dog stole the show. This movie had a killer cast with Ben Johnson, Brian Keith & Honor Blackman. Dean Martin came out west to do "Something Big" before he married Don Knight's Sister from the old Country. Well, he was having so much fun in the old west...the Sister came looking for him. With time running out he needed to trade a woman for the big gattling gun so he could get the treasure from the "Bad" Mexican Bandiditos! So what does he do, he accidently get's the wife of the Army Fort's Commander. Now everyone is after Dean!!! You can't rent this one...because it was never released to be taped! If you want to see it you will have to wait until some movie channel decides to show it...when ever that will be!!!!!!!!
