YMMV / Paint Your Wagon

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: See WTH, Casting Agency?
  • Awesome Music: "They Call The Wind Maria", performed by Harve Presnell.
  • He Really Can Sing: While there are fans who have doubts, a great many others were surprised at how naturally Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood could sing. After all, in Marvin's case, Wanderin' Star, wasn't a hit song for no reason.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The song "I Talk to the Trees" became funnier when Clint Eastwood gave a rather strange rambling speech towards an empty (wooden) chair representing President Barack Obama at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
  • Narm: Whenever Clint Eastwood or Lee Marvin sing', but that's only if you're one of the people who is not fine with the idea of them singing.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Harve Presnell, whose only major contribution to the movie is to perform an absolutely stunning rendition of "They Call the Wind Maria."
  • "Weird Al" Effect: As suggested on the main page, people who have only seen the The Simpsons parody may have no idea that it was ever a real movie.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Okay, the cast would've been okay if it was just a Western, but it was a musical!
