Flashback Friday-City Slickers (1991)

At a certain point in our lives, many of us start to question our life choices. That usually happens when middle age starts to creep upon us.

In the 1991 movie, City Slickers, Mitch (Billy Crystal) is a New Yorker facing a mid-life crisis. His 40th birthday is approaching fast and his career feels empty. To combat the onset of a mid-life crisis, Mitch and his friends, Ed (Bruno Kirby) and Phil (Daniel Stern) decide the antidote is a two-week long cattle drive across the American southwest. One of the cowboys, Curly (Jack Palance) shares not only his experience as a cowboy, but in life.

There is a universal element to this film. Many of us reach a point in our lives and start to question if we have made the right choices and if there is still time to make the changes we keep thinking about making.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
