Crop And Save
City Slickers (1991)
Existentialist & Formulaic
What is the "one thing" that cowboy sage Curly, raising his index finger, teaches our hero is the meaning of life? "The one thing you're devoted to," in so many words. But does it matter what that one thing is? Could it be God, money, a calf named Norman, terrorism, taking over the world, making bad movies? The important thing is whatever you make it; intrinsic value is not an issue. Well, I raise a finger to that, and it's not the index finger.
The funniest scene by far is "career day" at the grade school. Worth the rental for this scene alone, despite the vapid existentialism.
The sequel is much better.
Hello, He Must Be Going
Mr. MacIntyre's review is quite accurate. Groucho sits with his beret on, glassy-eyed and weak-voiced, along side George Burns, who still has a few good decades left in him. Billy Barty provides some movement, while Groucho can't even follow him with his eyes.
This is from memory. I saw the show when it was originally aired 26 years ago.
