The beauty of the language does come through, but the net effect of the movie is to make the viewers wish they had gone to the play instead.

This is good stuff. Unfortunately, director Herb Gardner is a little too fond of writer Herb Gardner's script, which just keeps going and going and going -- until even two old pros such as Walter and Ossie have worn out their welcome.

A stable of solid performances, led by leads Walter Matthau and Ossie Davis, are all there is to recommend.

The fire in Nat's belly and his zeal for justice make him an unforgettable character.
