'the gang that can't shoot straight'

Posted by Ward on September 09, 2004

In an email exchange I compared United Airlines in the States, to 'the gang that can't shoot straight'. Seems that everything they do is a real mess and they can't get their act together.
This is a phrase in the US that seems to me to have had a movie origin. But it may go back further than that? Anybody know?
