Trivia

Writer Neil Simon originally intended "The Out of Towners" to be a segment of the play of Plaza Suite (1971). It was entitled "Visitor from Toledo" and was intended to open the play on Broadway but was cut during the rehearsal period. Simon once described the one-act to the 'Newark Evening News' as being "...about a man who came to New York from out of town and lost his luggage. He got there in the middle of a transit strike. It was snowing. So after he had checked into the Plaza [Hotel] he had this monologue. We put 'Plaza Suite' into rehearsal, and after about the fifth day [the director] 'Mike Nichols' said 'We just have too much show here. If we include that monologue, the curtain will be coming down at midnight'". See more »

Goofs

After getting robbed, Henry Clark says to Nancy that he had his credit card hidden in his shoe, and he then takes it out. Nancy tells him to put it away, and he then puts it in his jacket pocket. When they reach the hotel soon after, though, he takes it out of his shoe again. See more »

Quotes

See, in the last 24 hours I have experienced more in this city that most people who have lived here their whole lives! I climbed to the top of a luxury hotel! Not in the elevator! On the actual hotel itself! And then I fell...in love with my wife all over again. And then...I had sex in front of the mayor! I mean, where else can all of this stuff happen! Only in New York!

moronic remake
19 December 2012 | by dartleykSee all my reviews

but a truly moronic remake of a bright, acerbic, top jack lemmon film that actually had a plot and moved through it; this is steve martin after he stopped being funny anymore, walking through a series of stupid skits- a la wow, wouldn';t it be funny if the car they rent has a gps they can't understand and they drive through a fish market; hello? overall very slow, disjointed, bad one-off skits, and instead of being unlucky and chipping a tooth martin and goldie hawn are incredibly stupid; hard to imagine a bunch of Hollywood cokeheads sitting around thinking the rushes were funny, entertaining even; also missing the good origmal music, the period scenes of nyc that are fun to see decades later; remember snl- and the thing about martin looking funny and making odd expressions was that it was the kicker to really good line; take away that and the frill are stale and fall flat
