Academy Award winners Jack Lemmon and Anne Bancroft star as a pair of disgruntled New Yorkers in the film version of Neil Simon's Tony Award-winning play in which a recently unemployed executive must subsist on his understanding wife's salary as his tenuous hold on sanity begins to unravel. Will his tough hide be enough to get him through the endless assault of minor annoyances in this humorous homage to modern urban life? M. Emmet Walsh, F. Murray Abraham, and Sylvester Stallone play small roles.
