Almost turned it off after 20 seconds

That god-awful song at the beginning of the movie ("Wichita, Wichita ...") almost made me turn the movie off. Why would they start their movie with such corniness? I did kept on watching and it turned out quite OK. I was not aware of such a big "cowboy problem" in old west towns, that was an interesting thing to learn. I liked that there were no real bad guys in this movie, just simple cowboys acting a little too wild. Contrast that with most westerns (including more recent movie about Wyatt Earp) where the good guy is usually pitted against professional gangsters.
