Overview

Ohio businessman Jack Lemmon is offered a golden job opportunity; all he has to do is relocate himself and wife Sandy Dennis to New York City. What follows has led some critics to complain that playwright Neil Simon has written a "hate letter" to Manhattan. Within a 36 hour period, the couple a loses their airplane luggage; b are forced to travel from Boston to New York in a greasy old train; c can't get any sort of service because virtually everyone in Fun City is on strike; d are mugged twice, once while they're asleep; e are reduced to sleeping on Central Park benches in their day clothes.....and so it goes, until the shabby, disheveled Lemmon tells his prospective bosses off, and he and his wife head back to Ohio---- almost. Punctuated by Sandy Dennis' plaintive "Oh, my Gawwwwd," The Out of Towners tightens the screws and ups the ante on the classic "comedy of errors" formula. Filmed on location, the picture features a who's who of character actors Milt Kamen, Anne Meara, Phil Bruns, Dolph Sweet, Richard Libertini, Paul Dooley, Robert Walden, Ron Carey etc. etc. etc. When first shown on network television, the film was shorn of its closing punchline because of an eccentric censorship rule.

    As Good As I Remember

    I bought this movie so that two friends and I could have a movie night. We watched the Zero Mostel/Gene Wilder version of The Producers and The Out-of-Towners. One of my friends had never seen either. It was a glorious evening! The cast was amazing, so many wonderful actors.

    THE ABSOLUTE BEST COMEDY EVER!

    This is the FUNNIEST, most well written comedy I have ever seen. Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis give the performances of their lives! If you've never seen it, you are really missing something. I guarantee you'll laugh from beginning to end. :)
