Movie Info

In 1951, at a small California inn, George (Alan Alda) and Doris (Ellen Burstyn) have an affair. Instead of writing it off as a one-night stand, the pair decide to meet at the inn every year for a romantic retreat, away from their respective spouses and families. In the decades that follow, both George and Doris face their own personal struggles and hardships, and together they develop a level of love and intimacy that exceeds the ones found in their own marriages.

Audience Reviews for Same Time, Next Year

    Likely something that your mom would like. two married people go through life having an affair once a year at the same hotel. They talk about their lives and how they have changed but they still have each other. Slightly barfy.

    A man and a woman meet every year to carry on a multi-decade affair. Two-handers, plays or films with only two characters, require two excellent actors who can carry the film. Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn are two such actors, but this film needs more than their strong work. What makes the film ultimately fail is the inconsistency of the characters. Even though Alda does well in this scene, it's difficult to imagine the man we've been getting to know for the last hour turning into a callous conservative prick. The same is true for the scene in which Doris comes in decked in full hippie gear. Also, George's neuroticism occasionally gets annoying, a fault of the script giving him ridiculous lines that -- once again -- aren't consistent with the rest of the character. Overall, Burstyn and Alda do their best, but crazy glue couldn't hold this film together.

    This is very obviously another love story that needed screen time. Highly entertaining but not a justification for cheating on your spouse.

    In a weird way it's kinda like the Godfather. The protagonists are doing a wrong thing, but you root for them to make it work.
