* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The villains figure out that, as villains, they must subvert the standard formula to have any chance of winning. Since the good guys always win, they hire ''themselves'' a good guy to stand against the hero.



* GenreSavvy: Rex has been through the standard B-western plot so many times he knows exactly what's going to happen. This time it's different because the villains get GenreSavvy too.

''Rustlers' Rhapsody'' is a 1985 parody of old B-Westerns, in which the hero Rex O'Herlihan the Singing Cowboy rides his wonder-horse Wildfire into yet another small frontier town to dispense a dose of non-lethal justice to the local CattleBaron. Only this time, reality finally catches up with Rex, and things do not go entirely as planned...

A fun good-natured little flick, particularly enjoyable for fans of old-time Westerns.
