City Slickers II: The Legend Of Curly's Gold ((BETTER))
A year after the events of the first film, Mitch Robbins is a much happier and livelier man, having moved out of the city. He is the manager at the radio station, and has employed his best friend, Phil Berquist. However, he is plagued with nightmares about deceased trail boss, Curly, and believe he may still be alive. On his 40th birthday, Mitch sees a man resembling Curly on the train. He later finds a treasure map belonging to Lincoln Washburn hidden in Curly's old cowboy hat, albeit with a missing corner. He and Phil investigate the map's contents and learn that Lincoln was Curly's father and a train robber in the Old West. In 1908, he infamously stole and hid one million dollars in gold bullion in the deserts near Las Vegas. With an impending trip to Las Vegas for a convention, Mitch decides to search for the gold (now worth twenty million) along with Phil, and his immature younger brother, Glen.
City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote: "City Slickers II, subtitled The Legend of Curly's Gold, makes the mistake of thinking we care more about the gold than about the city slickers. Like too many sequels, it has forgotten what the first film was really about. Slickers II is about the MacGuffin instead of the characters."
Crystal's Mitch - reunited not only with Daniel Stern's emotional Phil, Jack Palance as dead trail boss Curly's twin brother Duke and Norman the Calf (now a steer), plus new recruit Jon Lovitz as Mitch's crazy, shiftless brother Glen - has his life on track but still hankers after excitement. After a lacklustre and protracted prologue in the city, Mitch and the boys sneak off from a Las Vegas business convention and, armed with Curly's treasure map, go in search of millions in long-hidden gold. 041b061a72
