Drawing on dubious men-in-crisis notions, Ron Underwood’s diverting but dated fish-out-of-water comedy is basically Three Men And A Baby Cow.
Billy Crystal underplays it nicely as one of three dudes salving the midlife doldrums on a cattle-trail getaway, but Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel’s overstated script milks the life lessons and therapy-speak so hard you can almost hear the udders howling.
Modest pleasures smoothing the trek include Jack Palance’s Oscar-winning cowpoke and Crystal’s face-off with an ice-cream expert. But if it’s male-menopause mirth you want, Sideways is the stronger, subtler tipple.
