Nothing's sacred in Chile Verde, the wild western town where lone gunman Abel Wood (Hunter) arrives after rescuing corpulent saloon singer Rosie Velez (Divine) from being defiled by Hard Case Williams (Geoffey Lewis) and his gang of misfit gunslingers. Saloon owner Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan) gets hot 'n' heavy for Abel's wood, and passions flare up in a race for hidden treasure, the map to which is tattooed in two sections on Rosie's and Marguerita's ample posteriors. To reveal more would spoil the wretched hilarity; one needn't love Westerns to enjoy this pig-wallow of a comedy, but it helps if you know the legacy of screen villains like Henry Silva, who's riotous here while barely shifting his vile expression. No doubt, this is the wackiest Western that ever cooked under the "blistering, burning, blazing, scorching, roasting, toasting, baking, boiling, broiling, steaming, searing, sizzling, grilling, smoldering, very hot New Mexico sun." --Jeff Shannon

But already I am getting somewhat ahead of myself. The action actually begins when we see Rosie Velez (Divine) struggling in the heat of the desert with her mule as she tries to get to Chile Verde in New Mexico. Soon she meets up with a rough and tough silent type cowboy who turns out to be the very famous Able Wood; and together they enter Chile Verde.
Rosie wants a job as a singer at the only saloon in town owned by Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan); and the catfights start right from the word go as Rosie and Marguerita don't exactly get along. Sure, Rosie gets a job--scrubbing floors in the saloon, that is! Meanwhile, Able turns out to be in Chile Verde to find the long lost gold treasure allegedly buried there. Although the town's priest (Cesar Romero) denies that the gold treasure actually exists, soon almost everyone in town reveals that they are really there just to find the hidden gold treasure.
Of course there are many laughs along the way. Rosie sings a hilarious song as she auditions to sing in Marguerita's saloon; and Able spars with Hard Case Williams (Geoffrey Lewis), a rough and tough man himself--who is always quoting intimidating passages from the Bible. We get fight scenes and the inevitable race for the gold.
It may seem like I gave it all away; but I really didn't. Look for some very funny scenes with the piano bar player Red Barker (Courtney Gains) and the race for the gold treasure could make any one of several characters--or more than one person--very rich fast.Read more ›
I respect Paul Bartel, but I think John Waters would have been better for this movie. Yea, I know he turned down the job but that doesn't change the fact he probably would have made a better film. At least it would have been cruder and campier and that's what we want right?
Also Gina Gallego didn't have a big enough role.

I LOVE Divine and I enjoyed Paul Bartels Eating Raoul but this movie was just drab. Sad to say but after about 20 minutes I lost track. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Lucky13
