The Out-of-Towners (1999)
April 2, 1999
Rated PG-13 for some sex and drug-related humor
Welcome to New York.
When a mid-western couple flee their empty nest and head for the "Big Apple," a comic odyssey of unexpected calamities yanks them through the most bizarre 24 hours of their lives. Living in the unexpected, they take chances, go with the flow and ultimately find themselves - and each other. At the end of the day, they discover that sometimes there is nothing so right as when everything goes wrong.
Full synopsis »
Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn star in The Out-of-Towners
, a movie somewhat similar to Martin's earlier, classical film, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
. They are a married couple who travel to New York and must cope with a night on the town as their money is stolen, their bags disappear, and they are kicked out of their hotel. It parallels Planes, Trains
in the way that everything that can go bad does, except that Out-of-Towners
also deals with the romantic relationship between Martin and Hawn, which is better or worse depending on how you look at it (worse in terms of comedy). Full movie review »
