Movie Info

When Frank Sinatra sang "If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere, it's up to you, New York!" he probably didn't have the same odds in mind that line up against Henry and Nancy Clark in The Out-Of-Towners.

John Cleese upstages everyone as an arrogant New York hotel manager. His zany dancing in women's clothes brings back memories of those Monty Python silly walks sketches.

Too much of the time the glow of the pair is dimmed by the labored slapstick and painful groaners.

For all the connection the current reprise has to reality, it could be called The Out-of-Touch.

The Kellermans are played without much chemistry by Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn.

Fast-paced and enjoyable enough, aided by the dynamite duo of Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source:

This film has good matinee potential, if you're dying for an above-average comedy with Cleese in full drag. Otherwise, rent it.

The whole thing feels so staged that I expected to see cue cards somewhere in the background.

Audience Reviews for The Out-Of-Towners

One of Steve Martins better films, which doesn't say much.

My two favourite comic actors team up again. Their son has just left home, so they head to New York for a break, but get into all sorts of trouble,

Fairly fun, but nothing special.

Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn reunites since "HouseSitter" in this remake comedy film is a bit of laughs.
