The story centers on husband and wife George and Gwen Kellerman from Twin Oaks, Ohio who flew to New York for George's big job interview. However, everything in this trip didn't go as planned. From the rerouted plane, transit strike, being mugged (twice), kidnapped, and even busting one of his front teeth after sleeping in Central Park and running after a dog for food, Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis truly made such an awesome tandem in this movie.
With its extremely witty and funny lines, I can really watch this movie over and over again. The writer of this movie is a real beast for coming up with such an insanely engaging script. Below are two of my most favorite scenes:
"Oh, I'm whistlin' through my broken tooth! Hear it? It's a whistling sound! Sssssss! Do you think they are going to give a job to a guy that can't smile and talks with a whistle on his S's? Not on your sweet life!"
"You're not getting away with anything! I've got all your names and addresses!"
