Critic Reviews for The Odd Couple II

If that familiar jaunty theme music sends a rush through your body like a Geritol-and-prune-juice cocktail, then shrug off critical reservations and see The Odd Couple II.

Flat reunion comedy won't appeal to kids.

An afterthought, but fun to see Lemmon and Matthau again.

March 2, 2008 | Rating: 3/5

A big letdown. They waited 30 years to follow-up a classic comedy with this? Sadly, the final film Lemmon and Matthau did together is also the pair's weakest.

October 28, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Unfortunately--no offense, now--this is mainly a case of the Old Couple, given the mediocre direction of Howard Deutch and, mostly, the surprisingly bland script by Neil Simon.
