Amos and Theodore the two bumbling outlaw wannabees from The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975) are back. They are trying to make it on their own. When they arrive at the town, all sorts of things go awry. They accidentally subdue the town’s legendary lawman, “Wooly” Bill Hitchcock, thus enraging him into tracking them down. They also are accused of bank robbery, and they “enlist” in the Army, and burn down the fort. Amidst all this, the Army is beseiged by someone stealing their supplies.

Enjoyable to see their shenanigans

Like the first film, ‘The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again’ manages to suitably entertain. I still don’t think Theodore (Don Knotts) and Amos (Tim Conway) are majorly funny, but it is enjoyable to see their shenanigans – especially amid well-known crooks.Those two are about the same as they are in the 1975 original, but the side story in this isn’t interesting at all – the love stuff with Jeff (Tim Matheson) and Milly (Elyssa Davalos) is very forced. Harry Morgan, playing a different character than in the other, isn’t as good this time. All the villains, though not amazing, are all very solid in what they give.

‘The Apple Dumpling Gang’ is the better of the two, but both are just about entertaining to watch thanks to Knotts and Conway.

Not As Godd As The First One

This is the sequel of the first movie that was made in 1975 and that was The Apple Dumpling Gang. In 1979 The Apple Dumpling Gangs Rides Again starring Tim Conway as Amos Tucker, Don Knotts as Theodore Olevie and Tim Matheson as Private Jeff Reed. Those two bumbling outlaws Theodore and Amos are broke and down on their luck. So they decide to try to deposit a check in the local bank only to be accused of trying to rob it. While trying to escape they run into legendary Marshall Wooly Bill Hitchcock. With Hitchcock on their trail the two bumbling outlaws decide to enlist in the Army. Enters Private Jeff Reed who trying to figure out whose stealing guns from the Army surplus. After getting in all kinds of trouble Amos and Theodore end up in the stockade. Although they escape this mess, the witless team who could never shoot straight still can’t seem to succeed in going straight. It’s riotous, raucous fun as The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again. I saw the first one and I don’t think this was as good. However with Tim Conway and Don Knotts together you can’t go wrong.
