Rating:
G

The Out of Towners is a comedy written by world-famous playwright, Neil Simon. Originally, Simon intended to make this a series of short plays, but he quickly realized how well these would work as a film. He tells the story of an Ohio couple, George (Jack Lemmon) and Sandy Dennis (Gwen Kellerman). George gets offered a high position with his company's New York branch. Immediately, he and his wife make the move. They on their way to New York City, they face stroke after stroke of bad luck. Their flight can't land in the John F. Kennedy airport, it's rerouted to Massachusetts. Their luggage is somehow forgotten in Ohio. They spend the last of their money on a taxi and then a train to New York. They arrive without a penny between them, with no way to go on due to a massive strike by transit workers. The worst part? Their troubles have just begun.
