      City Slickers with Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, and Jack Palance. This is a humorous way of addressing the concerns plaguing men as they reach their mid life crisis. Crystal is the perfect wise guy to lead his friends into a dude ranch adventure in which all three heroes can find their way.

      Hate your job and bored with your life? Well watch this movie and you may find the answer to happiness without suffering the pains of discovery. My favorite part is the music score when they arrive to the Colorado ranch to begin a two week adventure with the


      other colorful guests.

      There is the black father and son dentists who desire to reform a bond of love. There are the ice cream company brothers who want to feel like tough guys though they are kind of nerdy.

      Then there is the single woman who is lonely and looking for love and happiness. As they start off on their cattle drive, we are treated to their version of the cowboy shouts from the movie Red River with John Wayne, as they individually yell “yee ha and ya hoo.

      • heads a bobbing, and icing down of the genitals at the end of their first day of horse riding. Jack Palance is perfectly introduced as he appears out of nowhere with the sun at his back so we are blinded.

        He is one tough mother. When Crystal’s coffee grinder spooks the cattle into a stampede, Palance stops them with just one shot and a glare.

        The music was pure western until Jimmy Durante sings his Young At Heart which makes us feel like we are in Alice in Wonderland. Circumstances bring the troubled Crystal and Palance together and they discuss the secret

        of life.

        Palance simply holds up his finger and says that it is one thing. As Curly, played by Palance, died peacefully sitting against a rock, we share his epitaph that he lived a simple, honest, and brave life.

        This brought tears to my eyes or was it the two rum and cokes that I drank during the movie? Another powerful scene was the discussion of best and worst days by our three heroes. At the end of this classic, we learn the meaning of the one thing riddle and it only served to highlight an exceptional warm male bonding film that should not be missed.
