More than just a great soundtrack.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If your mind reads the title "Take Me Home Tonight" and immediately follows it up with "I don't wanna let you go till you see the light," you're a part of the audience most likely to enjoy this movie.

Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.
