Ragged as some of it might have been, that old "Out-of-Towners" had a unified and surprisingly dark comic vision to go with its nifty one-liners. This big, glossy picture is set in movie-movie land, that shiny, peachy place where a celebrity -- like Mayor Rudy -- waits around every corner. [2 April 1999, Friday, p.A]
The filming location where Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn went for Steve Martin's interview was filmed at the WTC--on the 90th floor was the locating of Dun & Bradstreet. On 9/11; it was was the first of the famous Twin Towers to be struck by highjacked AA Flight 11.
A negative response would describe this film as a comedy that relies on tired, old jokes that only appeal to people without a sense of humour. I am struggling to find many positives (and trust me I want to give a balanced opinion) but it's a safe film that will appeal to a wide range of audiences and can certainly be considered a family film. Probably only worth your attention if you have low self esteem. 46/100
