    Good for Nothing may be slight, but it portends a promising frontier for Mr. Wallis. show more

    Good For Nothing is billed as the first Western shot in New Zealand, but that tourist-brochure distinction pales besides its more pungent claim to fame as the first Western whose hero spends the entire film attempting to overcome a bout of erectile dysfunction. show more

    I just saw Good For Nothing and it was at times a good movie at times great. It was slow only two times but it takes place at a time that nothing happened fast except gun fights.
