The Synopsis for The Prisoner of Second Avenue (1975) 1080p

The story of Mel and Edna ( and ), a middle-class, middle-aged, middle-happy couple living in a Manhattan high rise apartment building. Mel loses his job, the apartment is robbed, Edna gets a job, Mel loses his mind, Edna loses her job . . . to say nothing of the more minor tribulations of nosy neighbors, helpful relatives, and exact bus fares. The couple suffers indignity after indignity (some self-inflicted), and when they seem on the verge of surrender, they thumb their noses defiantly and dig the trenches for battle.

That moment of Anne Bancroft's is my favorite part of the entire film,often imitated where I used to work.

No one loves urban blight like Neil Simon, and no one depicts it aswell. "The Prisoner of Second Avenue" goes much further than "The Outof Towners" because now, the leads (Jack Lemmon and Anne Bancroft) areactually living in a New York apartment, sleeping in 12 degree airconditioning in their bedroom during a heat wave and sweatingeverywhere else. Simon leaves nothing out: not having the right changefor the bus, the elevator being out, no water, noisy neighbors, meanneighbors, a cheaply put together building, robberies in broaddaylight, etc. Lemmon plays a 22-year veteran of a business who isfired, suffers a nervous breakdown, and goes into psychiatric care. Hisproblems go beyond the loss of his job - he has to cope with hiscountry dwelling brother Harry (Gene Saks) and his two sisters(Elizabeth Wilson and Florence Stanley) who want to help but onlysucceed in being aggravating. Also, his wife has gone back to work as aproduction assistant and is never home.

This is really a comedy-drama that shows the enormous range of bothactors. The beautiful Bancroft is great as an empty nester who tries tobe supportive of her husband, who is losing it, as she goes toward thesame territory; Lemmon is alternatively a riot, as annoying as FelixUnger, and as sad as his character in "Save the Tiger" while heattempts to work through his issues and find out who he is.

With a high rise at Second Avenue and E. 88th St. as a backdrop, "ThePrisoner of Second Avenue" is timely today because it takes placeduring a recession. Suddenly, a lifestyle that wasn't so outrageous tobegin with is hard to keep up, and nerves fray.

City dwellers won't find it difficult to relate to this film, andtoday, with jobs cuts and loss of income, nobody will. Lots of fun.

Laughed so hard it hurt!!!Reviewed bytcaffreyVote: 8/10

I visited this site because of Anne Bancroft's death. I was shocked when I didn't see it on her Obituary as one of the movies that she was in. Although she has most known for the Miricle Worker and the Graduate, Prisoner on Second Avenue was always my favorite. Perhaps it because I also love Jack Lemmon. This movie is most appreciated by New Yorkers and can only remind you of experiences or characters that you grew up with. My wife and I watched it the first time when we first were married in the early '80's on TV I can't get passed it when I see it while surfing the TV channels. So I highly recommend renting this movie, ex specially if you were raised or now live in a urban environment.

Very funny, believe it or not.................Reviewed bysijoe22Vote: 8/10

For some reason, I only think us New Yorkers would appreciate this movie, but maybe not.

Anyone aware of what Manhattan was like in the 1970s will know this movie really nailed it; it terms of location shots, attitudes, Jewish stereotypes, and so on. This was a pre-Koch time in New York (May he rest in peace- he just passed a couple days ago. Great mayor, great person) and city was at the beginning stages of becoming an open sewer.

Street scenes will surprise all modern-day Manhattanites; I watched this movie several times, and there's not a single store or shop around then that survives today. (Near 87th & 2nd Ave.) So sad.

Jack Lemmon's character was funny, from start to finish, without TRYING to be funny. Always a treat- watch for Sly Stallone as a "mugger."
