Product description

Saddle up again with Billy Crystal and his city friends as they head out West in search of some buried gold. It seems that you can't keep a good (or bad) man down, as Mitch (Crystal) is confronted by what he believes to be the ghost of Curly (Jack Palance), who died in the first film. It transpires that Curly had a long lost brother, Duke, who knows about Curly's secret haul of gold. Mitch soon succumbs to gold fever and along with buddy Phil (Daniel Stern) and brother Glen (John Lovitz), sets out to find it.

Although most comedies fail in either storytelling or true comedic value, CITY SLICKERS II maintains the feel and fun of the first film in almost every way. Although the storyline may not have the weight and originality of its predecessor, the film still doesn't feel forced upon us. It seems to have a natural outflow from the events of the first film. The characters that we liked so much in the first are back, and we're not disappointed. Filled with heart and good comedic exchanges (not to mention some hilarious bits), I believe this film to be above average for its genre. -Sean

The original City Slickers was a comedy, but it also had a very strong story line to support the very average jokes. The sequel does away with the good story line- it's basically a repeat of the first, except they're looking for gold instead of driving a heard. In other words, all we're left with is a very, very average comedy. This movie IS watchable, and not the worst comedy I have ever seen, but there is far better out there!

Again a strong cast in City Slickers II, but Billy Crystal, Jack Pallance et al. make it more like a Disney romp than the observant wit of the first film. It's all a bit cliche ridden compared with the first film and the "discovering yourself again at 30" theme is a bit too done to death. Pallance returns as the twin brother of Curly from the first film (sounding contrived already?) and the gang go off to look for gold. Obvioulsy many "hilarious" and "touching" moments on the way. The first was simpler, better written, better acted, had a real edge and must be seen. Avoid the second.

If you liked City Slickers, then you'll probably enjoy this movie as well. Mitch is back to his normal life. He's got a loving family, including Norman who's a grown-up bull now! However he is haunted by the ghostly image of his late friend Curly and has a nightmare of accidentally burying Curly alive! One night at home, Mitch accidentally discovers a treasure map hidden in Curly's cowboy hat. He teams up with his friend Phil and brother Glen to go out West and find the buried treasure. Along the way, they meet two robbers who want the map and are about to kill the trio. Suddenly a person who looks exactly like Curly scares the robbers off with his gun and they escape. Is that really Curly come back to life or not?!
Action, adventure, obstacles, beautiful landscapes, friendship - you'll find all of this. And -of course- you'll laugh a lot too! Not as original as the first movie, but still great!

I disagree with the other reviewer. I bought the original City Slickers at a bargain price some time ago, and have watched it frequently since, its one of those comedies you just can't help but love. Its because of this that makes the sequal so appealing.
Ok, so like the other reviewer said, the original is better, more funnier, and altogether a little more solid, but City Slickers 2 is near enough just as good. After watching the original not so long ago, i remembered from somewhere that there was a sequal that existed, and so managed to pick this one up, again, for a bargain price. If you loved the original, this will no doubt satisfy as it sort of wraps everything up. We find what happened with Mitch (Billy Crystal) and his new found 'clarity', his best pal Phil (Daniel Stern) and his crumbling life, and we find out what on earth that "one thing" really is.
Jack Palance returns, but this time playing Curly's twin (don't worry the movie helps explain this) Ed (Bruno Kirby) isn't in this one, but Jon Lovitz makes up for this as Mitch's brother. Having found a treasure map in Curly's hat the trio set off on an adventure for the gold. This time without the cattle and (quote from the film) "guided tours and boxed lunches". Mishap, wise-cracks and the usual Billy Crystal formula comedy ensues throughout, and all ends in what appears a misleading, but then satisfying way. A great sunday afternoon film for all, and fans of the original will find this a real treat. Good stuff.

It`s really the same film all over again but i had an almost equally good time. Little disappointed with Jon Lovitz, he didn`t seem to get any funny lines, i remember the late Bruno Kirby being better in the first one & The Godfather stuff didn't amuse me. Recommended but i`m glad they didn`t do a third, that would`ve killed it.

One of the rare occasions where a sequel is just as good if not better than the original. With a few cast changes mostly for the better I think, the key 3 still make this movie equally entertaining! I would love to see a City Slickers 3!
