Empire
Great performances and an innovative approach to a tired old story make this one to watch out for.
75
Funny--but not that funny--western spoof.
70
Variety
Middlingly successful, sparked by an amusing way-out approach and some sparkling performances.
60
Cat Ballou does have flashes of good satiric wit. But, under Elliot Silverstein's direction, it is mostly just juvenile lampoon.
60
Village Voice
Pleasantly inoffensive. [29 Jul 1965, p.8]
60
Time Out
Marvin is consistently brilliant, but the film is patchy.
50
The New Yorker
Mainly it's full of sort-of-funny and trying-to-be-funny ideas. The director Elliot Silverstein's spoofy tone is ineptitude, coyly disguised.
