Item Details

"Although Buffalo Bill has fought Indians and Civil War battles, nothing can prepare him for his newest challenge: show business! His 'Wild West Show' is hugely popular, but when he signs a former enemy, Sioux Chief Sitting Bull, for a featured role, a hysterical clash of cultures reverberates far beyond the boundaries of their sprawling outdoor theater. And the complications only multiply when the troupe discovers it must put on a special command performance-- for none other than the President of the United States!"--Container.

Robert Altman or not, I didn't care for this movie. I give it an average rating because the story was conceptually good and the acting was good. There really wasn't anything I enjoyed about it.
