      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      With a supremely talented cast and just enough midlife drama to add weight to its wildly silly overtones, City Slickers uses universal themes to earn big laughs.

      Joel H I don't know if there's a better mid-life crisis movie than City Slickers. And while I watched it a lot as a kid, this film hits a little differently as a middle-aged adult. It wrangles just the right mix of humor and sentimentality. This could have been a goofy, over-the-top comedy about three idiots in the middle of a cattle drive, but instead it has a heart that keeps its boots firmly on the ground. Crystal hits a home run in the lead role, and Jack Palance is menacingly warm as the ever-memorable cowboy Curly. It makes me smile to see that City Slickers still holds up after all these years. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Gareth v A decent enough comedy whose strength lies in the performances of it's leads (Crystal, Kirby, Palance & Stern) as well as some excellent cinematography. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/17/23 Full Review Lelo t I think the movie was good except for some parts. My favorite part was when the flood happens and they save the cow.Sadly some of the characters I would have liked to have for the whole movie didn't stay but I still like the 3 main characters Mostly didn't like the part that if you watched the movie you would know what I'm talking about, but I did like the character development. That's all for this review and I will see you in the next one. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/24/23 Full Review B. B A really fun movie full of laughs & some drama. I never get tired of watching it. If you like Billy Crystal, this is definitely one of his best movies. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/15/23 Full Review georgan g This is a classic. It does just what movies are supposed to do, namely entertain on many levels. Laughs, of course, but you will feel many emotions while watching. It's one of those rare flicks that you really want to see every few years!

      James Jackson Times (UK) Between gentle one-liners and bucketloads of schmaltzy sentiment, the director Ron Underwood captures some of the rugged beauty of the American southwest. Apr 25, 2023 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader A diverting if bumpy ride... Aug 11, 2020 Full Review Jeff Menell Hollywood Reporter City Slickers is one cattle drive you won't want to miss. Jun 7, 2017 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The guffaw melts into sobs and what could have been a naughty comedy has been diluted into an emotive eulogy. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 20, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Billy Crystal displays his typical brand of humor, fittingly embodying a role written for him, while Palance's gravelly-voiced persona is unforgettable. Rated: 8/10 Sep 11, 2020 Full Review John Ferguson Radio Times An engaging, expertly played piece, which gently pokes fun at both midlife crises and the Wild West.
