A rip-roaring Buckaroo Bonanza movie....
I have seen that video City Slickers like a lot of times. Billy Crystal is funny and he is from When Harry Met Sally. Daniel Stern is from Home Alone. Bruno Kirby is good. Mitch Robbins(Crystal) is radio station employee who plays advertisements. He celebrates his 39th birthday with a few friends including Ed Farillo(Bruno Kirby) and Phil Berquist(Daniel Stern). Earlier,Mitch,Ed,Phil and Phil's wife Arlene return from a vacation in Mexico. At Mitch's birthday party,all hell breaks loose when Nancy,a cashier at a supermarket managed by Phil's father-in-law,shows up at the Robbins' home telling Phil she is pregnant(the Berquists' housekeeper told Nancy where Phil was). Nancy took a pregnancy test while on her break and it came back positive. When mean-spirited Arlene overhears this,she accuses Phil of impregnating Nancy. "I'm her boss and we have a health plan.",Phil tells Arlene. "Get out of this house,you little whore!",Arlene tells Nancy. Phil angrily quipps,"Hey, I will not permit you to talk to her that way." "I'll tell my father what you did!",Arlene angrily shouts. Arlene grabs the Robbins' living room phone and retreats to the phone in the Robbins' bedroom after the living room phone cord snaps in half. According to Phil,twelve years of celibacy will make someone crazy. This led to the Berquists' divorce. Mitch's birthday gift from Ed and Phil was a two-week vacation,driving cattle from New Mexico to Colorado. Mitch initially declines because he and his wife Barbara(Patricia Wettig) had planned a vacation in Florida. Barbara decided to not let Mitch join her and the couple's two children in the Florida vacation. Barbara gives Mitch the same gift as what Phil and Ed gave him. While on the cattle drive vacation, Mitch, Phil and Ed meet Curly(Jack Palance),a senior-citizen trail boss. They make a new friend as well,Bonnie Rayburn(Helen Slater). In one scene,Curly shoots dead a female pregnant cow after Norman the calf was born while she's in labor. Mitch "has his third child" named Norman! In another scene,Curly suffers a fatal heart attack while riding a cow. So Mitch,Ed and Phil plan a small memorial service for Curly. At the end of the vacation,the trio return with Norman in tow. Barbara and the Robbins' kids are shockingly surprised. They thought Norman was a dog. Mitch wanted to bring Norman home for at least a little while. Barbara didn't want Norman in the Robbins' home. "We'll put him in a petting zoo so he can be with your mother.",Mitch jokingly tells Barbara. This film was co-written and co-produced by Crystal and is one of 1991's highest-grossing films. In one part of the movie, they sing the Bonanza theme and that's why it is just a rip-roaring Buckaroo Bonanza movie to watch. This movie City Slickers reminds me of books on Black Beauty Illustrated by Scott McKowen and Interior illustrator Michael Fisher published in 2004 by Dalmatian Press, movies on Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again, Disney's The Pacifier with Vin Diesel, Virginia's Run, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Super Troopers, because everything in this world means a lot to me. I really loved that bonanza city slicker movie and I liked it a lot. CAR RAMRODWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
