This insightful, delightful comedy stars Billy Crystal as thirty-nine-year-old New Yorker Mitch Robbins, who's tired of his job and bored with his life. So he and his two best friends (Bruno Kirby and Daniel Stern) trade their briefcases for saddlebags and set out to find freedom and adventure herding cattle under the wide New Mexico sky. But what they discover instead is scorching sun, sore backsides ... and more about themselves and each other than they ever thought possible.
During its theatrical release, Rita Kempley of The Washington Post said that the comedy was a "sentimental, big-laughs western about life going on after thirtysomething", and Jeff Menell of The Hollywood Reporter called it "one cattle drive you won't want to miss". Aside from the trio of fish-out-of-water urbanites, City Slickers also starred the inimitable Jack Palance, who captured the Oscar®for Best Supporting Actor for his role as leathery trail boss, Curly.
