The Out-of-Towners


Time Out says

Lemmon and Dennis undergo the unexpurgated Manhattan melodrama: arriving from Iowa for a job interview, the couple run into a transit strike, a blizzard, a hotel which hasn't honoured their reservation, a mugging, and other New York specialities. Then, when they are flying home again happily, their plane is hijacked by Cuban revolutionaries. Neil Simon cranks out this kind of fluff before breakfast, but it is enjoyable. Lemmon suffers the mounting indignities with the skill acquired from playing urban neurotics for most of his career. Sandy Dennis, whose 'Oh my Gaards' punctuate the film like fingernails on a blackboard, gets everything she asks for.
