In the Old West, Tommy (Adam Sandler), known as “White Knife” by the American Indian tribe who raised him after his mother was murdered, is to marry a member of the tribe named Smoking Fox (Julia Jones) as arranged by his adoptive father Chief Screaming Eagle (Saginaw Grant).
Following a run-in with Will Patch (Will Forte)
and his Left-Eye Gang, who have all removed
their right eye, as well as a one-eyed food proprietor
named Clem (Steve Zahn), Tommy is visited by a bank
robber named Frank Stockburn (Nick Nolte) who claims to be his biological father.
Frank tells Tommy that he is dying of consumption and had amassed $50,000 buried in a meadow, which he offers to Tommy and his tribe.
The next day, a group of bandits led by the ruthless Cicero (Danny Trejo) come to the village and want Frank to give them his “big score.”
Frank has the bandits kidnap him so he can lead them to the money at the so-called “Singing Windmill”, in return for the bandits not attacking Tommy or the Natives.
After searching the meadow Tommy is unable to find the stash of money and sets off on a quest to steal the amount needed and save his father.
During his journey, Tommy discovers that
he has 5 half-brothers: Mexican burro rider
Ramon (Rob Schneider) whose innkeeper mother had a fling with Frank;
mentally challenged yet happy-go-lucky Lil’ Pete (Taylor Lautner) whose strong neck makes him immune to hanging;
feral mountain-man Herm (Jorge Garcia) who speaks incomprehensibly and helped his mother sell their moonshine; Drunkard, Danny (Luke Wilson),
the former bodyguard of Abraham Lincoln (Dan Patrick)
who is guilt-ridden from accidentally leading John Wilkes Booth (Chris Kattan) to murder the president; and African-American saloon pianist Chico (Terry Crews) who confesses to being half-White.
