Storyline

Summer, 1984: 30 years after Duane captained the high school football team and Jacy was homecoming queen, this Texas town near Wichita Falls prepares for its centennial. Oil prices are down, banks are failing, and Duane's $12 million in debt. His wife Karla drinks too much, his children are always in trouble, and he tom-cats around with the wives of friends. Jacy's back in town, after a mildly successful acting career, life in Italy, and the death of her son. Folks assume Duane and Jacy will resume their high school romance. And Sonny is "tired in his mind," causing worries for his safety. Can these friends find equilibrium in middle age? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Sal Mineo gave director Peter Bogdanovich the Larry McMurtry book, The Last Picture Show (1971). Sal thought it would be a good movie, but felt he was now too old for a young role. Sal Mineo is given "thanks" in the end credit of this film, Texasville, which is the sequel to "The Last Picture Show". See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the centennial parade, a half-built Ferris wheel with no cars attached can be seen in background; several minutes later, it's fully operational. See more »

Quotes

Jacy: It's ironic you broke all your ribs right before the Adam and Eve skit. I wonder what a psychiatrist would make of that.
Duane: I din't break all my ribs, I just broke three.
Jacy: That doesn't affect the irony honey-pie.

Disappointed
28 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the exception of Timothy Bottoms and Cloris Leachman, and the addition of Annie Potts, the acting fell far short of its predecessor, The Last Picture Show. I felt as if fading legends returned for one last curtain call, leaning upon greying memories of better times rather than reaching in and dusting off their talents. Bottoms and Leachman were, again, superb. Quaid was immediately tiresome.

Another note: the sound (not soundtrack) left something to be desired - many scenes had background levels that over-rode the centerpiece of attention. I watched it twice and still was distracted by it. Reviewing the Soundman's credits (over 300 items), I was unable to discern if this film was a fluke or if it was his trademark - because none of the listed items had I ever had the inclination to watch.

So, overall, this is a 3 of 10, unless you catch it for Bottoms, Leachman and Potts.. then an 8.
