"Billy Crystal is hilarious as the fish-out-of-water cowpoke. Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"Enjoyable comedy...[with a] generous array of funny lines and good moments... Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
"...a sentimental, big-laughs western... Rita Kempley, The Washington Post
"Fun, funny movie. Jack Palance is great. Staci Layne Wilson, Fantastica Daily
Editor's NoteWhen 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.

Plot SummaryThree 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.
