City Slickers
Billy Crystal and Daniel Stern




Overview -
When a thoroughly urbanized executive is struggling to find meaning in his life, his two best friends find the perfect cure: a fantasy cowboy vacation. The three friends then rope and ride their way down a trail that leads to a better understanding of themselves and each other. Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, and Bruno Kirby are exceptional as the three fish-out-of-water cowpokes, but Jack Palance steals the show in an Academy Award-winning performance. CITY SLICKERS is followed by its sequel, CITY SLICKERS II: THE LEGEND OF CURLY'S GOLD.

Synopsis:
Three male friends, facing their 40th birthdays and experiencing midlife crises, decide they need time away from their "soft" city lives. Fans of old Western films, particularly John Wayne's RED RIVER, they decide to vacation at a dude ranch, where they will be responsible for a two-week-long cattle drive through the Colorado hills. Along the way the urban cowboys encounter bad weather; macho, gun-wielding ranchers; and pregnant cattle, but they finish the drive with their lives back on track.

Notes:
Shown at the Cannes Film Festival, May 1991. It was also included in the Norwegian Film Festival in Haugesund, the Malmo Film Days in Stockholm, and the Deauville Film Festival. Shot in Los Angeles, New York, Sante Fe, New Mexico, Durango, Colorado, and Pamplona, Spain. It had an estimated budget of $26 million. The film's production crew included 16 ranchers and 2 livestock coordinators.
