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

When Mitch (Billy Crystal) and Barbara (Patricia Wettig) are in the other room arguing about Glen (Jon Lovitz) while he's reciting dialogue from "The Godfather Part II" to Phil (Daniel Stern), if you listen closely, he says "This is the business we have chosen! I didn't ask who gave the order!" followed by "Someone put a bullet in his eye!" In the actual Godfather film, the lines are reversed. Speaking about Moe Greene, Hyman Roth says "Someone put a bullet in his eye!" first, then "This is the business..." afterward. See more »

Quotes

Phil: Hey, Glen, let me ask you something. Who had Frankie Pentangeli killed?
Mitch: Phil!
[Barbara groans and leaves the room]
Glen: The Rosato brothers.
Phil: Who gave the order?
Mitch: [Hits Phil over the head with a pillow] You stupid dope!
Phil: [laughing] I love this.
Glen: There was this kid I grew up with. He was younger than me. Sort of looked up to me, you know.
Mitch: Glen...
Glen: We did our first work together, worked our way out of the street. Things were good, we made the most of it.

I know I'm in the Minority When I Say That...
1 March 2006 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

I found this film much more fun and fulfilling than the first because of the addition of Jon Lovitz to the base cast.

I realize this goes against common opinion, but I believe this installment was much better executed. The first movie, when compared to this sequel, feels like the main characters had something to prove to one another and not just to themselves where this chapter feels more self-motivated and "real," primarily to the addition of Jon Lovitz

One thing is for sure, without the City Slickers' version of the Criterion Brothers as ranch hands, it was definitely more enjoyable for me. The "danger" sequences were slim and short while maintaining a tall adventure.

Instead of using the first third of the movie to develop all the characters, they catch you up on Phil and Mitch and then lovingly introduce you to Glen. It left more time for the actual movie and less time for the "you must grow up to be a warrior" speeches and diatribes.

I loved it! Jon Lovitz is awesome!

It rates an 8.7/10 from...
