**Eastwood apes his owm image again.**
This superior sequel to _Every Which Way But Loose_ is a lot of fun and has more laughs than its choppy predecessor.
Phil Beddoe and his monkey are targeted by the mafia who make him an offer he cannot refuse. Along the way he encounters his _arch enemies_ – the _cretinous_ Black Widow biker gang who have a score to settle.
Big laughs, big fun and a big ape who is not above _soiling_ in police cars make this a lot of fun.
– Ian Beale
More of the same in pleasant sequel to Every Which Way But Loose.
Any Which Way You can is directed by Buddy Van Horn and written by Stanford Sherman and Jeremy Joe Kronsberg. It stars Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, William Smith and C.J. the Orangutan.
Philo decides to retire from bare knuckle fighting, but when the Mafia come along and arrange another fight, he is spurred on to take another big money fight. The Black Widows motorcycle gang are still after his blood, Clyde the orangutan is still creating mischief, and Lynn Halsey-Taylor is trying to make up for breaking Philo’s heart.
Much like the first film this is all very silly but ultimately great fun. Crux of the narrative is Philo being dragged back into the bare knuckle fight game to fight the street fighting king Jack Wilson (Smith excellent). All this and matters of the heart are trying to be repaired. Clyde the orangutan is once again a ball of mischief fun making, while the crowning glory that is the big fight is superbly staged and prolonged for grand effect.
There’s a wonderfully fruity section that sees parallel seductions going on – including Clyde and a lady orangutan – and there’s actually some adult writing in how the fighters are shown to be compassionate men, as opposed to just being brainless thugs making a few bucks. It was another big hit at the box office, once again proving that sometimes theatre goers just want to leave the brain at the door and have a fun time of things. 7/10
The Further Adventures Of Clint And Clyde
Clint Eastwood fans will correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe hes only venture into screen’comedy are Every Which Way But Locse and its successor film. This isn’t the kind of stuff that Cary Grant would have been doing, but the two films do keep with Clint’s macho screen image and allow him to slug a few people with some laughs in between.
Nearly all the characters from Any Which Way But Loose are back in this film Any Which Way You Can. Clint is once again Philo Beddoe who works part time hauling away wrecked cars, but makes his real money in the illegal bare knuckle prize fight racket. Clint lives in southern California, probably in a place not unlike Carmel, California where he was mayor. He lives with his mother Ruth Gordon, his partner in auto collision work Geoffrey Lewis and his pet orangutan, Clyde.
The last film ended with Clint not winning Sondra Locke, the country singer he lost his heart to. But Sondra’s back now and when Clint wants to back out of a bare knuckle fight with reigning eastern champion William Smith because he’s tired of the racket, the gangsters backing the fight kidnap her to force him to go through with it.
As in the last film, Clyde the orangutan gets the lion’s share of the laughs. The sex life of the orangutan gets even more screen time, Clint and Geoff Lewis don’t just find a zoo with a female orangutan in it for Clyde to mate with, they actually get him an adjoining motel room with Clyde and his lady love in one room and Clint and Sondra in another.
William Smith has the most interesting part in the film, usually he’s a thoroughgoing bad guy in his films, but in Any Which Way You Can he’s got a sense of honor and fair play, much to the distress of Harry Guardino and the rest of the gangsters backing the fight.
Any Which Way You Can has the same sense of rollicking lowbrow comedy that the first film has, maybe more so. As Clint Eastwood moves into his eighties maybe he’ll try comedy again. He’d be one great grumpy old man as he proved in Gran Torino.
A Double act which will make you go APE
Whoever thought of the idea of having a trucker/bare nuckle fighter and an APE as his manager must have had bananas on the brain.Its a classic, humourous film.
It also has a lot of action and a brillant country and western soundtrack.(Shame the soundtrack was never released)
Check out the tough old lady called MA played by Ruth Gordon and the idiots that are in this film as Hells Angels.
All in All,a Great Film with a great cast.Including Clyde the APE
