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.

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

There are a couple of belly laughs, but there's not much genuine spark.

While it won't come close to my top 10 best list for 1993, it will be right up there among the pictures that I had the most fun watching.

Two old men who are challenged to savor life's pleasures and end their feud

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