The Odd Couple II (1998)



Reviews and Comments

This movie has me torn. It's not very good, mostly because it's sort of pointless. The story is flimsy and worn out and ultimately inconsequential. Even comedies should go somewhere, but this one accomplishes nothing. On the other hand, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are a delight, and the script has a copious supply of good one-liners. I can't quite recommend the movie, but I can certainly recommend the ever-watchability of the stars. The movie could have been three times as long and not worn out its welcome, which is an odd (!) thing to say about a movie that isn't very good.
