English Summary:

Three Amigos is a 1986 American western comedy film directed by John Landis and written by Lorne Michaels, Steve Martin, and Randy Newman. Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short star as the title characters, three silent film stars who are mistaken for real heroes by the suffering people of a small Mexican village. They must find a way to live up to their reputation and stop a marauding bandit.

In 1916, the bandit El Guapo and his gang are collecting protection money from the Mexican village of Santo Poco. Carmen, daughter of the village leader, searches for someone who can come to the rescue of her townspeople. While visiting a village church, she sees a silent film featuring "The Three Amigos" and, believing them to be real heroes, sends a telegram asking them to come and stop El Guapo.

Lucky Day, Dusty Bottoms, and Ned Nederlander are silent film actors from Los Angeles, California, who portray the Amigos on screen. When they demand a salary increase, studio executive Harry Flugleman dismisses them. Shortly afterward, they receive Carmen's telegram but misinterpret it as an invitation to appear in character and perform for the people of Santo Poco.

After breaking into the studio to retrieve their costumes, the Amigos head for Mexico. Stopping at a cantina near Santo Poco, they are mistaken for associates of a fast-shooting German pilot, who is also looking for El Guapo and who arrived just before they did. The Amigos perform a show at the Cantina, singing "My Little Buttercup", and leave the locals bemused. The German's real associate.

 

German Summary:

¡Drei Amigos! ist eine US-amerikanische Westernkomödie aus dem Jahr 1986, bei der die Komiker Chevy Chase, Steve Martin und Martin Short in den Hauptrollen auftreten. Der Film persifliert Klassiker des Westerngenres, wobei die Handlung stark an John Sturges’ Die glorreichen Sieben angelehnt ist, der selbst eine Adaption von Akira Kurosawas Sieben Samurai ist. Daneben tauchen auch Figuren aus anderen Genres („der Deutsche“, gespielt von Kai Wulff) und Gestalten wie der „singende Busch“ (mit der Stimme von Randy Newman) auf.

Hollywood im Jahr 1916: Die drei Cowboydarsteller Lucky, Dusty und Ned, bekannt als die Stummfilmhelden „Drei Amigos“, verlieren ihren Job. Da erreicht sie der Hilferuf einer mexikanischen Gemeinde, die vom bösen Banditenhauptmann El Guapo (spanisch für ‚Der Gutaussehende‘) ausgebeutet wird. Im Glauben, es handele sich um eine Anstellung als Schauspieler, reisen die drei nach Mexiko. Als sie nach den ersten Begegnungen mit den Banditen erkennen, dass die Dorfbewohner ihre Filmrollen für Wirklichkeit gehalten hatten und sie in einem echten Konflikt helfen sollen, entschließen sie sich dennoch, dem Terror El Guapos ein Ende zu setzen. Zusammen gelingt es ihnen, die Banditen zu besiegen und das Dorf zu retten.
