Aging comics sparkle, swear, and spar in Neil Simon farce.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 22, 2013
Great chemistry between the two great comic leads and some pretty decent one-liners but this doesn't manage to hold together as a feature-length concept.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 22, 2013
One of the best films ever made from a Neil Simon play.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 13, 2010
Herbert Ross' version of Neil Simon's Broadway production is still a play--verbose and repetitious at that--but it's well acted by Walter Matthau and George Burns (who won an Oscar) as the two cranky vet vaudevillians.

It's generally an appealing and witty film because the leads are outstanding as cranks.

The Sunshine Boys is an extremely sensitive and lovable film version of Neil Simon's play, with Walter Matthau and George Burns outstanding in their starring roles as a pair of long-hostile vaudeville partners.

Mr. Matthau is so good playing old men, we may never know when he finally becomes one.

Ross directs indulgently and no one seems to have noticed the sound of the voices, as though the participants had their hearing aids switched off.
April 30, 2003
Matthau delivers one of the great comedic performances, and Simon feeds him one killer quip after another.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 30, 2001
The movie itself is a bit lackluster (clever dialogue, but it really goes on and on and on...).

Neil Simon's most irritating play is no less agonizing on the screen under Herbert Ross's sycophantic direction.
