For Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal), life is pretty much back to normal. He's got the wife, the kids and Norman the cow! But his comfortable routine is challenged by the ghostly image of his deceased cowboy friend Curly. When Mitch discovers a treasure map left in Curly's cowboy hat, he is convinced that Curly is leading him to a secret fortune. Mitch persuades his timid buddy Phil (Daniel Stern) and his addball younger brother Glen (Jon Lovitz) to help rustle up this bounty. And once out West, they team up with Curly's twin brother Duck (Jack Palance) who's as tough as his legendary sibling.
