The Out of Towners (1999) is a comedy directed by Sam Weisman about a married couple, Henry (Steve Martin) and Nancy (Goldie Hawn) Clark, who face a series of life changing events, some misfortunes, and some adventures as they travel to New York City.

Life Lesson:

It’s never too late to make a positive change.

Movie Scene:

Nancy: “Henry, Henry, you know what this is?”

Henry: “What is it?”

Nancy: “It’s a test. I mean, here we are in the middle of our lives, and we have a decision to make. Are we on a… a slow march toward death, or are we gonna embrace life?”

Henry: “Slow march toward death?”

Nancy: “No! Embrace life! I want to live! I want to feel useful! I want to explore and experience! I… I want to suck the marrow out of life, Henry! What do you want?”
