Mitch is a middle aged big-city radio ads salesman. He and his friends Ed and Phil are having mid-life crisis. They decide the best birthday gift is to go on a two week holiday in the wild west driving cattle from New Mexico to Colorado. There they meet cowboy Curly who not only teaches them how to become real cowboys, but also one or two other things about life in the open air of the west.Written by

This enjoyable comedy about a bunch of soft city guys who test their mettle on a cattle ranch has one major thing to recommend it: Jack Palance, in an all too brief appearance as a scary cowboy named Curly. Palance is obviously having a ball, and so do we.
I don't know if he deserved an Oscar for it, but oh well. At least we got to see him do one-arm pushups when he accepted his statue.
Favorite exchange: Billy Crystal: "Morning Curly. Kill anyone today?" Jack Palance (chomping on a cigar with a look of satisfaction): "Day's not over yet."
