Any Which Way You Can is a 1980 action comedy film, starring Clint Eastwood, Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, William Smith, and Ruth Gordon. It is directed by Buddy Van Horn. The film is the sequel to the 1978 hit comedy film Every Which Way But Loose.
After throwing his fight with Tank Murdock at the end of Every Which Way But Loose, Philo Beddoe is still fighting in underground bareknuckle boxing matches to make money on the side. Philo decides to retire, however, when he realizes that he has started to enjoy the pain. Philo and Orville decide it's time to end his career.
The problem is Jack Wilson—a new breed of East Coast brawler who mixes martial arts with boxing and is so effective at maiming his opponents that his handlers cannot book him a fight. During a conversation after a fight between a mongoose and a rattlesnake, one of the handlers realizes that Philo, the king of the West Coast brawlers, might not only agree to the fight with Wilson—it would be the biggest draw in the history of modern bareknuckle fighting. The Handlers, in conjunction with the mafia kidnap Philo's former love interest Lynn Halsey-Taylor in order to coerce Philo into agreeing to the fight.
