Based on Bernard Slade's Broadway play of the same name, this film is about George, a married New Jersey accountant (Alan Alda), and Doris, a housewife (Ellen Burstyn). The two accidentally meet in a Californian country inn in 1951. They have an affair, which they continue for the next 25 years, meeting only once a year for a weekend getaway at the same hotel. Through their long-running love affair, the audience witnesses the changes within America and its lifestyles over the course of a quarter of a century. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Well done filmed play absorbs us in the characters' lives."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Satisfied neither to be honestly frivolous or sincerely ambitious, Same Time, Next Year winds up giving a bad name both to comedy and to drama."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"It's funny, sad, unexpected and moving. Just like life and its relationships"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"What worked on the stage doesn't on film."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An overlong, tiresome, excessively theatrical comedy, based on Bernard Slade's play, about a 25 year tryst of a married man and married woman (Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda."
