  • movie Description
  • City Slickers is a comedy about a group of middle-aged men who try to deal with their respective mid-life crises by going on a cowboy adventure trip to the Southwest. Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal), Phil Berquist (Daniel Stern) and Ed Furillo (Bruno Kirby) are all close friends who realize that something is missing from their hum-drum lives. On Mitch's birthday, Phil and Ed present him with the gift of a two-week cattle drive vacation in New Mexico that they are all going to go on together. When they arrive, they meet crusty trail boss Curly Washburn (Jack Palance). Despite Mitch's repeated attempts to ingratiate himself with Curly, the old ranch hand won't have anything to do with it. As their attempt to drive the herd of cattle successfully to the ranch encounters numerous obstacles -- torrential floods, cattle rustlers and an unexpected birth -- Mitch, Phil and Ed discover what it truly means to lead a fulfilling life.moreless
