Based on Peter DeVries' novel Witch's Milk, Pete 'n' Tillie stars Walter Matthau and Carol Burnett in the title roles. Middle-aged when they first meet, eternally joking Pete and repressed "old maid" Tillie don't immediately hit it off. Gradually, their friendship deepens into love and culminates (reluctantly, on Pete's part) in marriage, eleven years of which is explored in this film. Throughout the funny and tragic moments, and despite the many breakups, their love endures. Oscar nominations

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
This is the wittiest, warmest and most ingratiating movie to appear in a long time, with a beautifully sustained and muted edge of sadness.
Character driven story with nice work by Matthau and Burnett.
The mixture of happiness and grief, laughter and sobs, reality and farce makes this an admirable attempt at great filmmaking.
Director Ritt keeps the gags coming, but it is the two leads' chemistry that makes the film work.
