Movie Info

Texasville is Peter Bogdanovich's much-delayed sequel to The Last Picture Show. Adapted from Larry McMurtry's novel and told as a series of episodes, Texasville follows the characters from The Last Picture Show as they reunite in a small Texas town nearly 30 years after the end of the last movie, and face a number of adult problems, as well as confronting lingering emotions and memories from adolescence. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

It all looks good, though, and the actors - epecially Bridges and Potts - are clearly having a ball.

It is, in a sense, like a high school reunion, taking people we last saw in 1951 and continuing their histories in the early 1980s.

Good but far from great sequel to Bogdanovich's "Last Picture Show."

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

The Last Picture Show is a stark and hypnotic portrait of a West Texas town in its final death throes, a lyrical and touching film about friendship and love and sex. Texasville is about nothing.

Bittersweet drama about the different changes in middle-age for men and women.

Fairly lukewarm sequel to an American classic. Has its moments, but not enough of them.

both a funny and a sad look at contemporary small town life during the Reagan years

must have seemed like a good idea at the time. But the result is muddled at best.

Audience Reviews for Texasville

Honestly, this the most bizarre sequel to The Last Picture Show. It's actually just as good, but completely different in story, visuals and mood. This is a complete black comedy as opposed to the fairly serious approach to the original. The characters have seemed to all lost their minds except for Jeff Bridges' Duane, who is slowly being worn down by his chaotic life that was never wanted by him in the first place. The main theme is about middle age and living with regret, but just as much about the effect of the 80s on a small town. I think it's actually a good thing that this isn't just more of the same. Peter Bogdonavich seemed to really want to make a separate and unique movie instead of a sequel. The performances are still great and the writing is clever, which is all you can ask for.

While Last Picture Show was clearly Sonny's story, Texasville decides to relegate him to the background (Timothy Bottoms not being the draw he once was, apparently) and focuses instead on Duane and Jacey -- whose story clearly ended all those years ago, as it certainly doesn't go anywhere here.

Almost everyone returns for this sequel, which is kind of sad, when you think about it. Cloris Leachman and Eileen Brennan reprise their roles, but they needn't have done, as the characters have nothing to do with the story (such as it is). And Randy Quaid is at his most annoying, playing a variation on his Cousin Eddie character.

No, I could have done without this one altogether.
