The movie's title, "City Slickers," could not be easily translated into foreign languages. For example, in France, the movie was called, "La Vie, L'Amour, Les Vaches" - literally "Life, Love, and Cows." See more »
Curly was wearing black when he died, but at the head of his grave sets a red and black coat or vest with some wool on it; this set under his hat, as if Curley had been wearing them both when he died. See more »

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.
