The story that Billy Crystal tells about his "best day" of going to a Yankee game with his father is a true story from his childhood. He notes at one point that, "I still have the program." Not only does he really still have it, but he got Mickey Mantle to autograph it twice: once at the game that day and once again some 20 years later on a talk show they were both guests on.

In the scene where Curly explains the "One thing", you can see a cord on Jack Palance for his mike. See more »

Great comic western
24 April 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Billy Crystal puts on a fine show in the comic western 'City Slickers'. This is a consistently funny and thouroughly enjoyable comedy which stars Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby as the 3 middle aged friends who take a vacation in the west and get into all sorts of carry on with cattle and Curly the cowboy. Crystal is a fine comedian and he certainly shows it here. Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby do well too and there is an excellent show from Jack Palance as Curly. There was also a sequel made called 'City Slickers 2 The Legend of Curly's Gold'. This was just as good and I also recommend it if you like this. But see 'City Slickers' a classic comedy western.
