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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

August 28, 2009
A funny, often hilarious, film that proves that a story doesn't need to be completely new just as long as there's a spin on it to make it different.

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

...sort of a one-note picture, but luckily that one note is often pretty humorous.

What ruins the fun is the prattling need for structure outside the central rivalry

August 24, 2008
Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are awfully good at this sort of thing.
August 24, 2008
Though supported by a stellar ensemble running the gamut of their seriocomic paces, it's not enough to distract viewers from script holes large enough to drive a snowplow through.

[Lemmon and Matthau] made much worse in the next few years.
June 24, 2006
Mediocre, regrettably.
January 26, 2006
A raucous geezer comedy that contains several hilarious moments where you're laughing well into the next scene.

Two old men who are challenged to savor life's pleasures and end their feud
May 20, 2003
Just don't expect their bickering to be on the level of Neil Simon, and you won't be disappointed.
March 23, 2003
A lot funnier than it sounds.
