Three Amigos! is a 1986 musical comedy written by Steve Martin, Lorne Michaels, and Randy Newman and directed by John Landis. The film stars Steve Martin as Lucky Day, Chevy Chase as Dusty Bottoms, and Martin Short as Ned Nederlander, three silent movie heroes who find themselves jobless after demanding a pay raise. Meanwhile, in the small Mexican village of San Poco, a young woman named Carmen (Patrice Martinez) sees the three in a movie and assumes they are real cowboy heroes. She sends a telegram beseeching them to help save her tormented townspeople from the evil El Guapo (Alfonso Arau) and his thugs. The trio receives the message but misinterpret it as a job offer, acting with El Guapo. They head to Mexico and perform a movie stunt that confounds El Guapo's thugs who ride off. This makes the townspeople believe the Three Amigos won. El Guapo comes to town to confront the trio, but they admit to their fear and as El Guapo runs roughshod over the town and kidnaps Carmen, the three amigos leave in disgrace.
