Storyline

The second part of City Slickers begins after the death of Curly. It is the 40th birthday of Mitch Robbins and the day begins quite good until he returns home (after a hard day at the radio station) and finds his brother Glen, the black sheep of the family, in his sofa. Nevertheless he is about to have a wonderful birthday-night with his wife when he discovers a treasure map of Curly by chance. Together with Phil (from the first part) and unfortunately with Glen he tries to find the hidden gold of Curly's father in the desert of Arizona instead of attending a meeting in Las Vegas. The adventurous journey reveals many surprises until everything seems to be over when the map gets lost... Written by Volker Boehm

Trivia

Bruno Kirby did not return from the original so Jon Lovitz is filling in. Lovitz's character constantly quotes The Godfather: Part II (1974) which Kirby was in. See more »

Goofs

At the very beginning of the movie, Mitch gets up at 5:16am, goes jogging with his "cow", then commutes by train from his home in New Rochelle to downtown Manhattan and arrives to work at 6:07am (see clock in background over his head). Can't be done. See more »

Quotes

Phil: In case we don't make it and I die first... eat me.
Mitch: Eat you? I don't even like talking to you on the phone.

Far inferior to the original
8 June 2014 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

'City Slickers II' is perfectly watchable without giving us a single reason why it needed to exist. It's sort of fun, and there are some genuinely funny lines scattered about (the whole 'Pass the Phil' scene) but the first film was one of the finest comedies ever made, and this isn't.

Signs of desperation trickle through the movie like a cinematic flop sweat. As the plot mechanics groan in order to get Billy Crystal and Daniel Stern back in the saddle, we're first introduced to Curly's identical twin brother - a contrived way to get Jack Palance back - and then Crystal's brother (Jon Lovitz) fills the gap left by Bruno Kirby, a character you would think might have come up in all those conversations about family in the original movie. The happy ending for Stern's character is unfortunately reversed, which just seems a bit mean-spirited.

While it's likable, this has nothing like the depth or poignancy or sheer avalanche of hilarious, character-based dialogue that the first movie had. This is far more of a bland and straightforward adventure with a few funny bits, and there's no getting past the fact that 'City Slickers' didn't need a sequel and the one we have really isn't good enough.
