PG-13 | | Comedy, Western
On the verge of turning 40, an unhappy Manhattan yuppie is roped into joining his two friends on a cattle drive in the southwest.
The scene where Mitch, Ed, and Phil cross the river with the herd and save Norman from the rapids were amongst the first scenes filmed.
Whose idea was this anyway?
The calving scene is a genetic impossibility. The "mother" is a mixed-breed beef cow, giving birth to a pure-bred Jersey dairy calf.
The opening credits show a cartoon of a cowboy practicing with a lasso
AMC version makes two changes in the scene where Mitch talks to his son's class; Sal's story is removed entirely, and the scene begins with the kids cheering, and Sal's "masturbation" hand gesture during Mitch's speech is replaced with an alternate take where Sal instead makes the "Whoopee!" gesture with his index finger.
