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.

Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are awfully good at this sort of thing.

Just don't expect their bickering to be on the level of Neil Simon, and you won't be disappointed.
