Editors Note
Note Neil Simon's touching romantic comedy tells the story of a divorced ex-dancer (Marsha Norman), with a small daughter (Quinn Cummings) to support, who must start her life anew when her latest lover abandons her to pursue his career. Further complicating her life is the arrival of an egotistical actor (Richard Dreyfuss) who sublet her Manhattan apartment from her wayward boyfriend. Despite their initial hostility, this unlikely pair discovers romance as they help each other cope with the hardships of life in the big city.
Plot Summary
Summary Neil Simon's romantic comedy is a funny and heartwarming tale of a divorcée, Paula (Marsha Mason), whose latest actor boyfriend abandons her and her precocious daughter (Quinn Cummings, in a breakthrough performance) and sublets their New York apartment out from under them. When Elliot (Richard Dreyfuss), an egotistical actor from Chicago, shows up in the middle of the night to stay in his new place, the strangers are forced to live in the same apartment. Struggling for work, ex-dancer Paula must learn to live with the actor and his bizarre and eccentric ways. Elliot's New York theatrical debut turns out to be disastrous, featuring a brilliant behind-the-scenes look at the New York off-off-Broadway theater scene, including a hilarious and painful rendition of RICHARD THE THIRD. Meanwhile, Paula endures embarrassing auditions and fights to get back into dancing shape. Despite their initial hostility, Paula and Elliot soon learn to rely on one another as they struggle to make it in New York. Herb Ross films Neil Simon's funny character study with a light touch, filled with memorable scenes and performances.
