Critic Reviews for Buddy Buddy
There is some byplay with doubles, disguises and mistaken identity, but the rest is all bland Panavision, dreary back projection, and laboured dialogue.
Instead of the sentimental cop-out that usually closes his films, Wilder has isolated an impossibly tiny center of real value and belief, an optimism that is extremely moving in its microscopic dimensions.
Another amusing pairing of Lemmon and Matthau as mismatched personalities.
Nice to see Lemmon and Matthau again, but this is hardly their finest hour.
Not top Billy Wilder, but worthwhile to see Lemmon and Matthau.
Wilder helming the classic comic pairing of Matthau and Lemmon is always going to be difficult to dismiss, but it has to be said that all involved had seen better days at the time this got made.
