This review is from: Urban Cowboy (DVD) I read some of the other reviews, and it's interesting the reasons that this movie was praised. Basically this movie presents very poor social messages. I mean, it implies that domestic violence, physical fighting with peers, drinking lots, and having sex with people you don't even know just because your mad, is the cool thing to do. So again, I don't approve of the social messages.On the other hand, if you are between 25-37 years old, you may have a fond place in your heart for this movie, as I do! The characters are attractive, and in the end, love wins out! You see, I love this movie, only because when I first saw it, I was at the age of wanting to find out who I was. And it did seem cool to be around family and friends, dancing, pushing life a little too far, etc. I also think it's one of John Travolta's best movies. He's handsome, strong, and likeable!
I'm not a fan of country music, so this cowboy life-style is not my everyday thing. But I remember seeing this movie back in the day, and loving it.I can't pin point what it is, but this movie is fantastic. John Travolta is riding high, Debra Winger(white-trasish and all) is sexy as hell. Scott Glenn steals every scene he's in, and the music is top-notch.(From Eagles, CDB, Buffet, and not to mention that classic hit 'Looking for Love" by Johnny Lee.)Dvd is good. really nice original widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35 with a very good 5.1 audio mix.$10 ???? Go get it.
Of all the movies i have seen, this one most accurately depicts the trials and tribulations of married life, although set in Texas with a country setting, it tells the honest truth about love and marriage and the passion to succeed and win the respect of your spouse, a truly great film and probably John Travolta's best performances ever.
Watching this movie at the drive in Pasadena the age of five or six and actually remembering it means somethings. That it was great movie. Now some...I hate to say it, twenty years later. I still think it great. Growing up in Pasadena, and Houston. I can relate to this move. I ain't being biased, I'm just being honest. This movie actually tells the truth about relationships instead of sugar coating it like all the rest the Hollywood chick-flicks try to do. Instead of all the teen love storis and the rich kid and and poor girl from the wrong side of the tracks dying to be with the rich kid. Nope, this movie is as realistic as Hollywood can manage. Sissy and Bud(that is his name...right?) I mean Travolta's character was a spoiled, wanna-be macho redneck but at the end he forgets all that and finds himself still in love Sissy. And yes there are fights in honky-tonks. Aren't there also fights in any other bar. Then again aren't all girls not just country girls trying to get there guy jealous by dancing with other guys at bars also. I hate it when anyone who is not from the south or southeast making fun of people from here. WE are not all stupid inbreeders with a an IQ and education of fifth grader. I am going to end this with saying that this was and still is a great film.
Great characters, a realistic love story and a full-bore celebration of the charm, insecurity, and honesty of country boys everywhere, you just can't go wrong with "Urban Cowboy". This is the way more scripts should be written and film should be made.Shot around Houston in the late 70s and early 80s, this film is a tour-de-force of country music, dancing, and late nights Texas style. The plot centers around the John Travolta character, an ambitous small town dude who meets his match in the big city. It's an honest portrayal of a flawed but ultimately likable guy, along with his "feisty" little lady played by Debra Winger. I don't know if there has ever been a more faithful portrayal of young romance and two kids duking it out over what they have to prove to the world.But where things really get going is with when the big heavy shows up, played by Scott Glenn. He's one of the more intimidating cowboys you'd ever hope to run into, and the Travolta character is not only outgunned, but makes a fool out of himself trying to compete. Brother, I wish they made more films like "Urban Cowboy". All of the characters are flawed, people do lame things to each other -- an accurate portrayal of life's messiness, country style. Pass the stuffing heya nagh
This review is from: Urban Cowboy (DVD) Love this movie! Travolta never disappoints, even bake then. Pure entertainment in it's rawist form. You laugh, cry..., never a dull moment.
Quick and simple, I love this movie.As some others have mentioned, I also, am not from the south, don'treally care for country music and have never worn a cowboy hat. (I'venever drove around in a car with a dead body in my trunk either, but Ilove "Goodfellas.") This is just great film making. Shot in a 2.35aspect ratio and beautifully transfered to DVD. (The VHS was 1.33 fullscreen). And yes, a solid 5.1 mix for your viewing pleasure. What canyou say about this movie?It's just a great love/hate story set in Texas, with greatperformances. Travolta is fantastic. Next to "Pulp Fiction", it's thebest thing he's done. It's been in my top 5 for 25 years!!Check this one out!!! It's a 10 !!!!
This movie is awesome, I wish these days were still here.A true country back home movie.!!!Its been my favorite since the first time I seen it when I was eight years old. And I still love it to this day. I can't get enough of this movie !!!!
#3 in young John Travolta's trilogy of blockbusters. He dances todisco, rock 'n' roll and country. He heads to Houston to find work andlove. Gilley's is the hot spot, and it is the time of the mechanicalbull. Not to be outdone, I rode the bull at a club in Nashville. Irecently saw this nearly forgotten film on television and rememberedhow good it was and how good a year 1980 was. I wore a black cowboy hatthat year just like Travolta. Debra Winger was in her prime. She looksstunning in her red top. There is plenty of charisma. Bud and Sissyseem the ideal couple even if they are trailer trash. They split upjust because it feels so good getting back together. Urban Cowboy hasan amazing soundtrack. We get to hear Lyin' Eyes by The Eagles andLookin' For Love by Johnny Lee.
This review is from: Urban Cowboy [VHS] (VHS Tape) I bought this for someone as a gift and to see her facial expression when she opened it is why I give it a "5". It made her very happy. I'm sure she enjoyed it.
yes! that is correct it is being released on DVD October 8,2002it is 17.99 reserved and 24.99 regular.If, I remember correctly it was a more expensive vhs tape as well. SeemsHollywood knows quality movie making when they make it.
I was about 11 years old i found out i live 0.48 miles from the unclehouse. the uncle house is on Westway Dr, deer park, TX. they have addedhomes since the movie was made. i don't know the house number but youcan go look it up. i am now 21 and i enjoy watching this movie. the baron Spencer is no longer their. Pasadena ISD wants to build a schooltheir. I drove by the house last week the house still looks great. Mydad and uncle would go to the street where the house is and watch theactors come in and out of the house trying to make the movie. wherejohn cross over the railroad cracks they have made 225 higher. when ihear about john loesing his son i start thinking about when he madeurban cowboy he was 26 or 25 at the time.
People from any demographic group HATE it when they are played by someone in a movie or television show who is NOT from that group - and does it poorly. Southerners cringe listening to Cary Elwes attempting to convert his British accent to Texan. John Travolta - young, handsome, talented and from an Italian-Irish Catholic family in New Jersey - was BORN to play Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever, and was rewarded with an Academy Award nomination at age 24.He was not as obvious a choice to play a good ol' boy on the outskirts of Houston named Bud. But by golly, he does it. His inflection and phrasing would work in any honky-tonk from El Paso to Chesapeake. His body language is just right, from the way he carries a long-neck beer to the way he hooks his thumb inside his belt. He even wears his cowboy hat correctly - pulled down to his eyebrows rather than exposing his forehead.The story is no great shakes - basically a cowboy remake of "Fever", with a mechanical bull-riding contest substituting for the dancing. Debra Winger is great as Sissy, Bud's love interest - feisty and sexy. Supporting roles are performed with gusto by Barry Corbin as Bud's Uncle Bob and Scott Glenn as a mechanical bull-riding rival and former convict.There have been other "Yankees" who have brought a Southern character vividly to life (Olympia Dukakis comes to mind...) but any time I see someone try - but fail - to play a southerner, I always think of Travolta in this movie, and think that it couldn't have been easy. Well done, Sir.
This film is one of my all-time favourites and I watch it every chanceI get. For some strange reason hardly anyone I know will admit theylike it - even though several of my copies have disappeared over theyears! Every time I have introduced it to an Urban Cowboy virgin, theirinitial reaction (of course) being complete disdain and supposed hatredfor the movie, they get hooked. Whether it be after the first time theysee it, or the 5th - I know when I turn it on in the lounge and theyhear it from the other room, they sheepishly sneak in have a peek onlyto complain 'Oh not that cr*p again!' Yeah right! soon enough they aresat down on the sofa and refuse to get up for any reason throughout theentire 2 hours and 13 minutes of it - just like myself.I am not a cowboy hat wearing, snoose spitting, mechanical bull ridinghick and don't have to be any of those things to love and appreciatethis movie. The human nature aspect of it is absolutely brilliant! Thescript, the southern drawl accent, the acting, the verbal and physicalabuse - soap operas can only dream of using this sort of material andmaking it work with their 2nd & 3rd rate actors. Bud, Sissy and Wes are3 of the most convincing characters ever portrayed on film - seriously.and I haven't even mentioned the unbelievably amazing soundtrackthroughout the entire film. Johnny Lee rocks!!On reading a review on the internet i saw a quote 'Bud and Sissy areimmature, self-absorbed, shallow, one-dimensional nitwits'. hmmm....andthe problem with this is? Hahaha, brilliant commentary! Judge Judyseems to be the only other place on television one can find suchstupidly irresponsible behaviour coming from grown people - trueAmerican entertainment at it's best!
When OH Whennnnn is this movie going into Blu Ray?? There are some movies out there that are screaming to be watched in Blu Ray, and this is one of them...PLEASE VOTE HERE AND COMMENT!! We need to be HEARD!!!
This movie is SO bad, it's good. It's like a train wreck -- you knowit's awful but you just can't look away. However, I cringe when I seepeople here call this thing "the classic American love story." Sincethese two lovebirds, Bud and Cissy, spend most of the movie arguing andfighting with each other and Bud also being physically violent withCissy and other people, what does this "classic American love story"really have to say about American love relationships? Not much that isgood! Apparently, in Texas all disputes must come to blows. I cannotimage these two characters living happily ever after. The next fight isprobably always just around the corner for these two. Oh, and thesoundtrack...what a piece of redneck Americana. Yeeehaaww!
Urban Cowboy is about Bud Davis ala John Travolta and Sissy aka DebraWinger. Two southerners who meet up and share a night of passion in theinfamous Gilles bar.Bud is an old fashioned blue collar working man. Bud was obviouslyraised with a set of ideals much older than himself. Bud is a nice guy,but a little cocky and hard headed and he does believe men to bestronger of the two sexes. It seems to bother him to no end when hisgirlfriend ''Later Wife'' Sissy does things that ''only a man shoulddo'' like drive his truck and ride that mechanical bull at Gilles. Thisset of ideals eventually pushes Sissy away and into the arms of anotherman...Wes Hightower ''Scott Glenn'' Wes is a muscled up ex convict whoacts as a third party to the love triangle between Bud and Sissy. Onenight while not in the best of mood Bud picks a fight with Wes, Budbeing quite drunk takes a quick beating in the parking lot of Gilles,Later Wes injures Bud even further when the two of them get into apeeing match with the mechanical bull ''Which Wes is controlling''. Wesis also working on a scheme in which he plans to rob Gillies.Eventually things work out for the better...Bud and Sissy re-uniteafter Bud apologizes for his behavior, only to realize moments intotheir conversation that Sissy has been subjected to physical abuse fromWes...Bud loses his cool and attacks Wes inside of Gillies, This timeFueled by pure rage Bud beats up Wes pretty badly. Wes had been hidingthe recently stolen cash from Gillies. Bud exposes this when he attackshim.Overall its a good movie worth watching 9/10
