‘Young Guns’ Movie Summary

Our Mighty Duck’s story begins in Lincoln County, New Mexico ca. 1878. Billy the Kid is the white man’s Tupac Shakur – a brooding thug, walking the line between law and lawlessness. Here he meets a frisky General Zod, who takes a liking to Billy, and places him in his group of strapping boy toys known as the Regulators.

They are a motley crew consisting of Julia Robert’s best friend, one of Biff’s sidekicks, Richie Valens, Jack Bower, and Mr. Tiger’s Blood himself. Zod plays John Tunstall, a proper English cattleman with a knack of making men kneel before him. He’s not gay. He’s British. Curly from City Slickers plays John’s main rival, Irishman Murphy. He’s a politically-connected gangster with Sheriff Brady in his pocket. He also has a bad Irish accent and loves to eat Chinese.

At the behest of Murphy, the Sheriff and his men take out Tunstall. Billy and his boy band can do nothing, but sit helplessly nearby and watch. After threatening a justice of the peace, he deputizes the new kids on the block in hopes of arresting the men that killed Tunstall…like that could happen.
