According to Billy Crystal in the "making of" documentary, when he first came up with the story and came up with the character of Curly, he immediately wrote down Jack Palance's name as the ideal choice for the role. No other actor was considered for the role. See more »

This movie is for anyone who needs relief from a crisis, middle-aged or otherwise.
Three buddies head down the trails to relieve their midlife crises. They wind up sharing the adventures of a lifetime. I have enjoyed this movie each and every time I have seen it. The comedy is pleasant, and you will not exhale during the river rescue scene. *** out of ****
