5.0 out of 5 stars fighting to the top of my list
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

1.0 out of 5 stars "Right turn, Clyde."
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.

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... :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Ruth Gordon And Clyde Steal The Show, 23 July 2006
By 
Peter Kenney (Birmingham, Alabama, USA) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Every Which Way But Loose [DVD] [1978] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic sequel - how did they follow the first one ?, 15 April 2001
By A Customer
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Right turn, Clyde.", 7 Aug. 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Right turn Clyde, 3 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Return to an Old Favourite, 24 April 2014
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Round 2 with Clyde, 27 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Any Which Way You Can (DVD)
Philo Beddoe, the easygoing truck driver and bare-knuckle brawler, and his 165-pound orangutan pal Clyde get into more mischief in this faster and funnier sequel to Every Which Way But Loose, Clint Eastwood is Philo, hoping to "retire" from fighting. But a new contender lures him back - and mobsters kidnap Philo's girl (Sondra Locke) to ensure he'll turn up for the showdown. Ruth Gordon as Ma, Geoffrey Lewis as Orville and those hapless motorcycle morons called the Black Widows all return in fine form. Songs by Glen Campbell, Jim Stafford and Snuff Garrett make up a tuneful country score, including an Eastwood/Ray Charles duet on Beers to You. As ever, Clyde steals the show, especially in a courtship scene with the lady orangutan of his dreams. Any Which Way You Can, you'll be entertained.
