Synopsis


City Slickers
City Slickers blends sight gags, one-liners, and sincerity, with both humor and drama arising from the characters and their situations. Mitch (Billy Crystal) is a radio station sales executive who finds himself in the throes of a mid-life crisis; accompanied by two friends, Phil (Daniel Stern) and Ed (Bruno Kirby) in the grip of similar problems, he heads to New Mexico for his birthday to participate in a two-week "vacation" cattle drive to Colorado. The three friends and the rest of their group, including an attractive, newly single young woman and two African-American dentists, are all urbanites lost when it comes to herding cattle and surviving on the prairie; it's up to authentic, almost mythic cowboy Curly (Jack Palance, who won an Oscar for the role), to whip them into shape. As various adventures occur along the way, including run-ins with outlaw cattlehands, treacherous natural mishaps, and Mitch's delivery of a newborn calf, the three "city slickers" open up to each other, learn to appreciate Curly's Old West values, and begin to resolve their midlife dilemmas. When Curly dies, it's left to Mitch, Phil, and Ed to bring in the herd. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi

    I really have enjoyed this film over the years and was happy to be able to add it to my DVD collection recently. Billy Crystal is terrific as a man dealing with a mid-life conflict. Bruno Kirby is outstanding and likeable. Jack Palance steals the show, even though he doesn't get the screen time that Crystal, Kirby, and Daniel Stern receive. The cinematography is as wonderful and vivid as the story line is touching and memorable. The movie carries a great message without getting maudlin and drippy that should be appreciated by most viewers. With some reservations, it a great family movie. Highly recommended!

    A great comedy with plenty of laughs! Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, Bruno Kirby star as normal , middle-aged men who set out to try their hand as cowboys on a 2 week trip. They run into all sorts of trouble as they find out its not as easy as it looked on paper especially when faced with a tough boss played by Jack Palance. If you've never seen this you are in for a treat!

    Really hard not to enjoy this awesome Bromance movie which also has some good comedy and thoughts about life. Crystal, Stern, and Kirby are a great trio for "bringing in the herd." Jack Palance is downright spectacular. This edition has some decent extras to watch.

    City Slickers is a great movie about getting caught up in American Capitalism, and how it can affect the midset and dynamic of a family. This is a great movie for the family to watch together.

    A Little Disappointing

    Considering the superb cast 'City Slickers' had to work with, I'd be lying if I didn't say that I was slightly disappointed with the overall product. The cast has so much more potential than was put to use in my opinion. Widescreen with decent bonus material.

    One of the best things about seeing a good movie on Blue Ray and having a pretty good sound system (which we do, thank you very much) is a better than theater look. Then there is always sitting around watching in your jammies! :)

    To see the defined color and hear the full sound. The lines were better, the scenery more beautiful, and the I laughed more. To hear the deep base voice of Jack Palance and the whine of Billy Crystal great!!
