The Out-of-Towners

The Out-of-Towners

Directed by Arthur Hiller • 1970 • United States
Starring Jack Lemmon, Sandy Dennis, Sandy Baron

Scripted by Neil Simon, this black comedy of mishaps follows an Ohio couple (Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis) as they travel to New York City for a job interview, a doomed thirty-six-hour excursion during which they experience all the frustrations, headaches, and horrors that the 1970s Big Apple had to offer, from transit woes to muggings and more. Crackling with Simon’s typically snappy, razor-sharp dialogue, THE OUT OF TOWNERS offers a painfully funny, all-too-real take on the chaos of life in the city that never sleeps.
