Rating: 3/4 -- Jack Lemmon, Sandy Dennis, and a gritty New York City make this worth watching. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Exasperating--should be called 'Down-n-Outers.'

Rating: 60/100 -- Even with the normally loveable Jack Lemmon as its star and a script from Neil Simon, it's a dreary bore.

Because Simon is dealing with a place -- and a commonplace -- rather than people, it is only too easy to see the jokes coming long before they arrive. Full Review

It is the closest the sound film has come to recapturing the genius of the silent movie chase comedy. Full Review

Product Description:

Up for a prestigious promotion, middle-class businessman George Kellerman (Jack Lemmon) travels from Ohio to New York City with his wife Gwen (Sandy Dennis), hoping to enjoy a bit of fun and relaxation in the Big Apple before the job interview. But the Midwestern couple's dream vacation turns into an urban nightmare as they experience a seemingly endless series of travel mishaps: diverted flights, lost luggage, missed trains, cancelled hotel reservations, muggers in Central Park, unfriendly locals, and even a police chase or two. This hilarious, fish-out-of-water comedy was penned by playwright Neil Simon specifically for the big screen and boasts a comically frenetic pace, hilarious performances from the harried leads, and a glimpse into the gritty urban reality of 1970s New York.

Plot Synopsis:

A neurotic Ohio businessman takes his wife on a flight with him to the Big Apple, where he has a job interview with a New York firm. With the company paying for their accommodations, the couple hopes to make the trip a small vacation and head to the airport with great expectations. But nearly everything that could go wrong does in this comedy of errors by playwright Neil Simon.
