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

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It all looks good, though, and the actors - epecially Bridges and Potts - are clearly having a ball."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"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."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"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."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"both a funny and a sad look at contemporary small town life during the Reagan years"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Miss Shepherd...is exceptionally good as Jacy."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"This is purty near the worst movie of the whole year."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Bittersweet drama about the different changes in middle-age for men and women."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"must have seemed like a good idea at the time. But the result is muddled at best."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"comes off like an exceptionally slow episode of Dallas."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Good but far from great sequel to Bogdanovich's "Last Picture Show.""
‑ Steve Crum, Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers
"Fairly lukewarm sequel to an American classic. Has its moments, but not enough of them."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
