Ron Underwood pay homage to the classic western with a decidedly '90s sensibility in this comedy adventure..The cast is better than expected. Jack Palance's famed supporting role as the crusty ranchhand is a lot of fun. Billy Crystal is solid as the wisecracking protagonist but his costar Daniel Stern has some surprisingly good character work. The pacing is terribly uneven though. But its fish-out-of-water comedy beats are funny.

A film more well-known for Jack Palance's Oscar speech when he did push-ups than probably for anything actually in the film. This is a fairly typical early nineties comedy star vehicle. Billy Crystal gets to play with his friends and do Billy Crystal things. This is definitely not a bad thing, but it's not world-changing either. It has it's moments, Jack Palance steals every scene that he's in.

Billy Crystal decides to go to a dude ranch while experiencing a mid-life crisis and undergoes the usual lightly comic life lessons. Worth seeing for Jack Palance sending himself up as a grizzled old cowpoke.
