    I have to agree.Its hard to top the original.Lemmon is hysterical as the ohio businessman encountering one disaster after another in the big apple.Seeing him pull out his little notepad in every situation to take down someones name so he can sue them,gets me chuckling everytime.

  • I still like the original best..

    Hello Dale, first of all you have my sympathies, yours is not an easy job; customer service never is. Second, I'm sorry you should have taken this version to heart, I really don't believe it was a personal affront to all customer service workers, lol. In fact, things were much different back in the '6os & '70s, everyone wasn't as "sue happy" as they are today. The way I viewed Jack Lemmon's character is quite the opposite from what you perceive. Quite the contrary, this man is a "pussycat", a pushover in life, not the vindictive, uncaring monster one might misconstrue as being his normal personality type. Even in a real-life scenario, I would have had to laugh at his outlandish attitude, and would have respectfully pointed that out to him. While every encounter was intended as tongue-in-cheek, I do understand that there are some folks out there that are truly miserable people regardless of the impetus or situation. You just have to shake your head in disbelief and hope they don't give themselves heart attacks or high blood pressure. But for my dime, I'll take the original version over the remake any day.

  • Could not sit through the whole film

    First I saw the newer version with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn and wanted to watch the original. The intro billed this version as the better one, I have to disagree. I got about 30 minutes or so into the movie and had to turn the channel. Jack Lemmon's character was just too abusive to customer service workers on issues they had no control over. I realize it was all in fun, but I am a hotel General Manager and have experienced abusive guests like him complaining to us about their own mistakes too often. The film just left a sour taste in my mouth.
