City Slickers, Collector's Edition [Blu-ray]
Three middle-age buddies (Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, Bruno Kirby) facing personal crises decide to sign up for a two-week cattle run for a change of pace. The trail proves a tougher place than anyone thought, and the boss (Jack Palance) is a grizzled taskmaster who doesn't cotton to tenderfoot urbanites. Popular in theaters, the film is both funny and moving, with Crystal giving one of his most complete performances and Palance (who won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar) a lot of colorful fun. Director Ron Underwood (Heart and Souls) subtly shifts the tone of the film from broad comedy to poignancy over its running time, and he makes the story's end a bittersweet victory that feels like life as most people know it. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal), Phil Berquist (Daniel Stern) and Ed Furillo (Bruno Kirby) are three friends approaching mid-life at break neck speed. Each year they go on increasingly more dangerous adventures which Mitch's wife (Patricia Wettig) describes as desperate and juvenile attempts to hold on to their youth. When Ed suggests mushing along the trail of Admiral Byrd as a way to top running from bulls in Spain, Mitch is ready to quit the adventure trips and settle into senior life at the ripe old age of 39. After a demotion at his job and a surprise at his birthday party where Phil and his icy wife Arlene (Karla Tamburelli) have a blow out after she learns of his infidelities, Mitch's depression gets the better of his wife who sends him on one more adventure - to find his smile.
And so it is that the trio finds themselves on a cattle drive in the American west with five other lost souls and Curly (Jack Palance) as the cattle boss. Palance is wonderful as the gruff old cowboy who intimidates everyone around him (Mitch:"Kill anyone today, Curly?" Curly: "Day ain't over yet."). Yet he knows the secret to life and relates the cryptic answer to Mitch during the ride. As they drive the cattle and overcome obstacles like stampedes, drunken escapades by the trail hands and their own personal struggles, Mitch comes to realize what Curly's answer means and that it is the only answer he needs to bring the pieces of his life back together.
Curly's(Jack Palance)vivid picture of the sun shining through the dress of the woman he has loved all of his life, yet never approached...Bruno Kirby's "best day" and "worst day" monologue...and Billy Crystal's advice to a friend whose life has been recently shattered... "Your life is a do over..." referring to when they were kids and a ball would get hung up in a tree...go for it it's another chance...a do over.
That will be you plagiarizing the line..."Cow's today!" the next time your child crosses a social boundry! Stop me, somebody....stop me...I could go on and quote the entire script..."Woof...woof"!
A buddy film ...with a simple story line...dealing with midlife crisis and it's cure...that will put a smile on your face from the first frame to the last. Keep one on the shelf for emergency loss of joy therapy!
Billy plays a middle-aged man who is facing a crisis in his life of who he is. He's bored with his job, bored with his life in general, and even though he claims to love his family, a little bored with them.
Daniel Stern plays a man who has a monster wife. He works at a store her daddy owns and the daddy and daughter are both tyrants. When his wife finds out he is having an affair with one of the clerks, she divorces him. He claims he had the affair because 20 years of no sex will do that to a man.
Bruno Kirby is a rounder. He has married a beautiful girl and he's thinking of playing around on her. She wants kids and he doesn't at this time.
Therefore, they go out west to find themselves on a cattle drive from New Mexico to Colorado.
Billy, Daniel, and Bruno all learn that they can find themselves right where they started out from: at home. Billy realizes he cannot be without his family for very long without missing them. Daniel finds another woman who loves him for who he is. Bruno decides to go home and get his wife pregnant.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that Jack Palance did one humdinger of a job as Curly? He was great, although he can't sing much, but then he's an actor not a singer. He portrays as a rough cowboy type who don't take no guff off anybody. He strikes Billy as a scary sort, but then when Curly passes on to the other side of life, Billy realizes Curly was just another lonely soul who needed friends.
This is a very good movie and I'm rating it 5 stars.
