From Amazon.co.uk

Clint Eastwood's 1978 comedy Every Which Way But Loose introduces Filo Beddoe, a truck driver and mechanic whose daily life is an absurd grind. He's constantly coming up short on money, love and anything else to help him get through the day, while also saddled with a loony mother (deliciously played by Ruth Gordon), a best friend (Geoffrey Lewis) who's not too swift on the uptake and an orangutan named Clyde who fights almost as well as Clint. While moonlighting as a bare-knuckle fighter, Clint finally meets the girl of his dreams (Sondra Locke), a snooty country singer who rebuffs him even as he pursues her, trailed by bikers and brawlers. It's Eastwood's magnetism and charm that make this more than a mere string of comic sketches, and things move along quickly enough to be entertaining, if a little thin. Clyde is a natural scene-stealer, but it's Ruth Gordon's crazy, cranky old coot who steals the film. --Robert Lane

Format: VHS Tape
this is one of clints finest movies he's ever made
from the movie EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE (which is one of my personal favourites)comes the most action packed sequel which i could see over and over again
the movie centres around a retired bare-knuckled fighter who is blackmailed (by having his girlfriend kidnapped) into one last fight against a well known fighter.
along with his companions orville and his orangatang clyde
not only does he set out to get his girlfiend back and defeat this fighter in one of the most exciting fight scenes ever made
he also has to take on the "deadly but laughable" black widow biker gang once again..who he humilliated in the first movie (they are so funny in these movies)
this movie will not just make you laugh your head off..but i guarantee you will not be disappointed
if only there was more sequels to this movie... :(

Format: DVD
EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE is a comedy which stars Clint Eastwood as an itinerant prize fighter who looks for illegal bouts featuring heavy betting. He falls in love with a country and western singer who leaves him, causing a lengthy chase episode in which Clint is trying to find his girl friend while angry bikers and cops are pursuing hin. The humor is supplied mostly by Clint's constant sidekick, an orangutan named Clyde, and his agent's outrageous mother played by Ruth Gordon.

The cast also includes Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D'Angelo and Walter Barnes. The director is James Fargo. The movie is definitely not a work of art but it is a very funny farce which is quite enjoyable if you don't take it too seriously.

Clint and Clyde have done it again, with this suburb second outing of the dynamic duo. The first movie was funny enough, but the wise cracks in this second instalment of the orang-utan mayhem will have you falling out of your seat, definitely worth a watch.

By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE on 7 Aug 2014
Format: DVD
Sadly this film doesn't live up to the original film. The stars are there in fine form from their original roles, but even they can't keep up with the disjointed plot and very flat character development. Not even Clyde the orang-utan is used to great effect, except for the new development of him punching people from the passenger side window on command.

It slowly descends into a manic, mad-cap film the likes that would suit Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise in 'The Cannonball Run'. Eastwood can do comedy, but when he's not on screen, the host of characters are too dumb to take seriously unlike the first film. Eastwood and his co-stars play well on screen and are entertaining to watch, but it's the narrative that drags them down.

It's very simple, but very daft and cluttered and just descends into chaos towards the end. It is one of the sequels out there you don't really need to see.

How can I describe this film.......well you either love it or hate it. It has to be one of the oddest movies from the 70's and especially for the star Clint Eastwood. Eastwood plays the role of Philo Beddoe a truck driver who is also a bare fist fighter. The film follow's Beddeo as he tries to find a woman who he has fallen in love with who keeps giving him the slip, during the course of his journey he gets into fights and various other hilarious situations as he is persued by the police and a group of bikers called the black widows (take note of the cheesy music when they turn up). But the real star of the film is Clyde the orangutan, it is worth seeing the film for him alone.

SO, I LIKE CLINT!!! THE GUY IS A LIVING LEGEND. AND, TO SWITCH FROM "EIGER SANCTION" TO "DIRTY HARRY "TO WORKING, AFFECTIONATELY, WITH "CLYDE" ( THE ORANGUTANG ), ONLY ADDS TO THE MAN'S GENIUS . THE STORYLINE IS IRRELEVANT. THE FILM IS A FINE COMEDY. BUY IT, AND "PASS IT ON." IT'S TIMELESS!!!

This is essential viewing for any Clint Eastwood fans. Comedy, action & Clyde the Orangutan! This is the 1st of two great movies about Philo Bedoe, a prize fighter/ loveable rogue & his adventures with 'Orvil' his best friend & 'Clyde' the maniac orangutan. His trouble with a biker gang called the Black Widows & two disgruntled cops is just a side line to a great story which I haven't seen for years but still makes me laugh. Excellent entertainment from one of Hollywood's greats! Recommended viewing
