THE OUT-OF-TOWNERS
January 2, 2015  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

Another entry in tonight’s TCM salute to Neil Simon, this 1970 move stars Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis as visitors to New York, whose every bite of the Big Apple leads to something very sour. If you want to understand, or relive, the urban squalor of the big city circa 1970, this is it. Simon’s dialogue, and the acting by the stars, is very funny – but the location photography is dismally, and intentionally, depressing. It’s followed at midnight ET by a much earlier, Simon effort, 1963’s Come Blow Your Horn.
