In the days of silent film serials, one of the noblest trios to grace the screen and get the bad guys was the Three Amigos: Dusty Bottoms (Chevy Chase), Lucky Day (Steve Martin) and Ned Nederlander (Martin Short). But when their Hollywood glory days wane, they receive a letter from a desperate community in Mexico that thinks their heroic characters are for real: they want the Three Amigos to come to their tiny Mexican village and defeat the notorious bandit El Guapo (Alfonso Arau). Unfortunately, the Three Amigos misinterpret the letter - they're off to visit the Mexican village dressed as their movie characters, thinking they're getting a high paying gig. A plethora of pinatas and a comedy of errors occurs before they can prove themselves as worthy as their screen heroes! Directed by John Landis (Animal House, Trading Places), here is an uproarious comedy about three lovable bumblers who are in way over their heads but come what may, they'll always remain the Three Amigos!
