The Rousters ★★½ 1990 (PG)

Descendants of Wyatt Earp run a carnival in a small Western town. Comic misadventures arise when a modern varmint named Clayton comes looking for action. Cannell (of “The A-Team” and “Riptide” fame) cowrote and produced—with his usual extraordinary mix of the absurd and the dangerous. Unusual vehicle for Rogers, but she keeps her style and humor. Made for TV. 72m/C VHS . Jim Varney, Mimi Rogers, Chad Everett, Maxine Stuart, Hoyt Axton; D: E.W. Swackhamer; W: E.W. Swackhamer, Stephen J. Cannell. TV
