Audience Reviews for The Out-of-Towners


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

Dean King

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,

Candy Rose

Fairly fun, but nothing special.
