Year: 1994
Director: Paul Weiland
Writer: Lowell Ganz/Babaloo Mandel
Cast: Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, Jack Palance, Jon Lovitz, Patricia Wettig, David Paymer, Pruitt Taylor Vince
Trying for the same thing again and only marginally succeeding this time, largely because most of the comedy came out of the charisma that Crystal, Stern and former co-star Kirby shared.

This time around it's just a silly comedy. Curley's twin brother Duke (Palance), a sea dog rather than a landlubber, convinces Mitch (Crystal) that Curley left a fortune buried somewhere in the desert, and that they have to saddle up again to retrieve it.

Inserting Jon Lovitz into the hole left by Kirby was a valiant try but he's more of an idiot-style comic and it doesn't really suit the movie.
