City Slickers

Dir: Ron Underwood, 1991 (8.1*)
Three bored urban friends, Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, and Bruno Kirby, sign up for a "dude ranch" cattle drive vacation. The fun starts when they meet Curly, played by Oscar winner Jack Palance, in a satire of his outlaw gunfighter roles, like Shane; and he hates greenhorn tenderfoots on the trail. Josh Mostel and David Paymer are hilarious as take-offs on Ben & Jerry of ice cream fame, who get their kicks thinking of different flavors for dessert after certain foods. There are also the usual bad guys so you'll know it's a western. Helen Slater provides the romantic interest, see quote below. Hilarious dialogue in parts, down a star for a slow plot. One Oscar
Quote: That’s not ‘good night’ – that’s ‘I love your ass, I’d like to wear it for a hat’! (Kirby)

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
