Often unfairly compared against The Last Picture Show, this much maligned movie still has a lot to offerBy Laurence Scotford from Brighton, England , 31 Aug 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]You have to feel just a little bit sorry for Bogdanovich and the cast of Texasville. Inevitably the benchmark for this film is The Last Picture Show, but of course there was never much chance that the sequel could come close to the original. Set some 30 years after the Last Picture Show, the original characters are now coping with the stresses, strains and responsibility of middle age. The overall tone of the piece is wistful and light-hearted, and I think Bogdanovich has managed to recapture some of the spirit of the original. It's certainly not a classic, but it does have its moments and is still a watchable film, although it doesn't really stand alone if you haven't seen The Last Picture Show.
Its really the Dukes of HazardBy Geelongalah (3 reviews) , 15 Dec 2011This film is very poor -- its more like an episode of the Dukes of Hazard (without the funny bits). Very little actually happens, there is no story line as such and too many of the characters have been made to be 'quirky'.
Its very hard to empathise with any of the characters. Jeff Bridges -- what were you thinking?
Texasville the sequelBy Scotwimen (21 reviews) , 19 Nov 2011What a disappointment. The Last Picture Show is one of my favourite films. This has all the ingredients-same cast/writer/director yet it is as different as black & white.
The first film was a brooding Classic wheras the sequel is like a light hearted comedy. I guess the tone of the film is what makes it poor as even if it had been shot in black & white, it wouldn't have the same magic.I wouldn't have watched it to the end, had I not been such a big fan of the first one. I wonder if those great actors/production team involved in the original felt the same....
Tediousville Texas.By Harper69 (10 reviews) , 11 Jun 2011In The Last Picture Show we saw a small Texas town that had seen better days and like an old man wished for better, happier days past, Texasville was just tired and so was everyone involved in this effort.Give it a miss but read the book by Larry McMurtry.
UgBy a customer from England , 13 Jan 2006Would the Peter Bogdanovich who make The Last Picutre Show have made this? I dont think so. It scored a high dull rating. Maybe Peter should have got a script writer in, or taken some early advice.
Peter had the cast, the location, the talent, so, how come this film came into its dullness.
The last ten minutes gave a taste for what the film should have been. Mostly focusing on Jeff Bridges was pointless, he did his best strut, but that aint enough to carry any film. This film is classifed as comedy, um, someone must be laughing at us for spending money to watch this.
