The Out-Of-Towners (1999)

Sam Weisman directs Steve Martin, Goldie Hawn and John Cleese in this comedy remake where a Midwestern suburban couple find themselves lost in New York.

A bit of a nothing film. The jokes are not really present until the final twenty minutes. Martin and Hawn, too overqualified comedy stars on a downward trend at this point, never really fit as a pair of straight nerds… so watching them lose it in the city that never sleeps at best only brings them to the baseline level we expect from them… EVENTUALLY… by the very end.
