Where Lemmon begs for our approval, Matthau barely bothers to perform. An odd couple indeed.

In their prime, the by-play of these two (Lemmon and Matthau) was like an entertainingly bad marriage, but time has made their antagonism seem perfunctory, and the rapport that underlies it somehow smug.

So-so comedy with insults, sexual humor. No kid appeal.

the real reason this movie works is the fantastic, decades-honed chemistry of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau

Irresistible...the prime hams and real-life friends share comic timing that can only come from years of experience. [Blu-ray]

Mediocre, regrettably.

A raucous geezer comedy that contains several hilarious moments where you're laughing well into the next scene.
