The Odd Couple Reviews
Adapted by Neil Simon from a play he wrote, a movie that perfectly captures one of cinemas most enduring and prolific comedy duos - Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. Though not their first movie together - that honour belongs to Billy Wilder's The Fortune Cookie from 1966 - this is the movie that ensured there'd be more Lemmon-Matthau collaborations.
Both are in fine form here, and are perfectly cast for their roles. Wonderful delivery and sense of timing on both their parts.
Great script too. The dialogue is snappy and very funny, with some great one-liners. Some great sight gags too.
A comedy classic.
