The source material is strong, as are the central performances by Matthau, Lemmon, and Sarandon, but Wilder has forgotten that what sells farce is not just the dialogue, but the pacing too.

Slightly disappointing remake of His Girl Friday kept watchable by the comic talents of one of the best double acts in the business.

Matthau & Lemmon are always classic together
