Overview

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.
