Slobbish bachelor Walter Matthau is forced to set up house with prim, cleanliness obsessive Jack Lemmon in a classic comedy of manners featuring one of the all time great comic double acts.

This eponymous 'buddy movie' is fully deserving of it's reputation. Lemmon and Matthau are perfect on-screen 'companions'.

The best line in this movie is when Walter Mathau says, "I'm thinking of becoming hysterical!" lol.

A good comedy involving to guys totally different from one another. There are many good scenes and there are both comical and serious scenes but they all keep a constant tone that is very good. Walter Matthau is great as Oscar and Lemmon is okay as Felix I would have to liked to see Art Carney as him but oh well. Anyways the only flaw with this film really is one scene where Felix makes a noise to clear is sinuses it is over the top and it is the only thing like that in the film.

The Odd Couple review

Revisiting a wonderful comedy that may seem exaggerated but still wonderful enough with themes of marriage, friendship and enjoying life. Oscar (Walter Matthau) meets a suicidal and neat Felix Ungar (Jack Lemmon). The slow start is very evident compared to when the two leads interact freely. Supporting cast (except for the sisters) were not that entertaining and interesting. It's plot maybe simple but still brings in the much needed humor. Screenplay was intelligently written with lines like "Life goes on even for those of us who are divorced, broke and sloppy." "With my expenses and my alimony, a prisoner takes home more pay than I do." and "It takes two to make a rotten marriage." Overall, the performances and dialogue were suffice to make it view-able and enjoyble.

3.5/4
