Product Description

In characterizations that became comedy history, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau return as the supremely mismatched Felix Unger and O scar Madison. Once incompatible occupants of the same New York apartment, Felix and Oscar now find themselves confined to a Californ ia rental car, a situation tolerable only because they are on their way to the same wedding. But the road from LAX to San Malina is a bumpy one, fraught with countless challenges to an uneasy alliance optimistically forged in spite of Oscar's careless style and F elix's fastidous ways.

From Amazon.co.uk

Sequels might be the lifeblood of mainstream Hollywood film production but it took 30 years for The Odd Couple 2 to reunite Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and writer Neil Simon for a follow-up to their scintillating 1967 success. Now Felix (Lemmon) and Oscar (Matthau), once mismatched flatmates, are forced to renew their old friendship when their respective children get married. Cue all the ingredients for a disaster-riddled journey to California for the wedding: lost luggage, allergies, dangerously wanton women (and their husbands), illegal immigrants and repeat visits to the same police station. All the old irritations rise quickly to the surface, Simon's dialogue is as sharp as ever and the vocal sparring skills of these two magnificent comedy players are undiminished, though there's a certain poignancy in their physical frailty: "I'm too old to hit but I could spit you to death", threatens Matthau at one point. Crumpled and puffy, neither of them looks in great shape. But the film gives a neat symmetry to two of the finest cinematic careers. As Matthau says towards the end, it's "the biggest goddamndest déjà vu anyone's ever had".

On the DVD: The Odd Couple 2 on disc has no extras apart from the original theatrical trailer. The film is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby Digital Surround soundtrack. It looks and sounds good. Alan Silvestri's score borrows the Neal Hefti theme from the 1967 original from time to time. --Piers Ford

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It was hilarious, well acted and had a good story. The chemistry between Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon is a joy to behold. I've watched it over and over again and it still makes me laugh. It is a very underated movie and takes some beating in enthrallment factor.
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau reluctantly meet up again after many years apart to attend the wedding of their respective son and daughter. A hilarius journey ensues with the old enemies getting lost, losing Jack Lemmon's suitcase and being arrested before they finally reach their destination.
It is full of little sub plots which make for an extremely entertaining film. This is a definite buy.

The old saying is that comparisons are odious. I wouldn't necessarily expect every production featuring popular artistes to measure up exactly to their previous efforts, but in the case of 'The Odd Couple 2' I would make an exception. The original 'Odd Couple' from all those years ago set high standards, almost every line was a gem, it was crafted like a work of art, was a big hit and spawned a TV series. The prospect of a sequel, written by the same writer, and featuring the same actors, was tantalizing. The result was a shambles in comparison, as if Neil Simon had just scribbled it out on the back of an envelope. It could pass ok as an afternoon TV movie.
I can't understand why there are so many good reviews. Perhaps the other reviewers weren't making the connection with the original, but I can't see it that way, it is, after all called no.2 for a reason. It's just a missed opportunity.

The obvious point is, it's not a patch on the original. Like most sequels, it capitalises on the original that spawned it, and in most cases I would agree that this isn't how the best films are made.

Having said that, Lemmon and Matthau stand as one of the great double-acts in cinema history, for my money in the same league as Laurel and Hardy, and I'd rather watch their second-best than most of today's equivalents at the top of their game.

It's true, forget the original and this is just a run-of-the-mill road movie,except there are some very good lines and enough laughs to keep you entertained through the course of it.

If you remember L & M, you won't need persuading. If you don't, this is just a B-movie that punches a little above its weight - good fun for a wet afternoon.

How I wish I hadn't bought this film. The Odd Couple originally was a classic full of witty lines written by Neil Simon brought to life with marvellous acting by Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. I laughed from beginning to end.

Although the script of TOC II was by the same writer, the plot was predictable and not that funny, but by far the worst of it all was watching Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau thirty years older, a sight I would never want to see again, when they could barely bumble through the film without support, with their comic timing gone and the acting poor.

Thank goodness for their old films, at least we can still admire what they once were.

I expected to be disappointed with this follow-up to the original "The Odd Couple" made in 1967 but am delighted to report that 30 years later, this film had everything and more, in fact much more than any other comedy film made in the last few decades. These guys you can always trust to give you superb performances and are so good at what they do, I can imagine the director just sitting back in his chair and laughing at what Lemmon and Matthau can create between themselves without the need for direction, such is their genius. I was shocked however, at least initially, at Jack Lemmon's character Felix using the F word in the film. However, when you look at his character from the original film and imagine that 30 years on he will be even more cantankerous than that, it is plausible that Felix would use the word. Hilarious from start to finish, I can't recommend this film highly enough. If you don't have the original, buy that and see it before looking at this, you will love both.

The Odd Couple (the first one), has to be, in my book, and countless others too, the funniest film ever made. So, naturally, I bought the 2nd one.
Walter Matthau couldn't be anything but funny. He only has to be there to be funny and The Odd Couple 2 is no exception. He is brilliant.
But Jack Lemmon?
And Neil Simon?
Well, lets face it, Jack Lemmon has grown old ungracefully. He has a whole new array of virgin white teeth which makes him look unusually youthful around the lower jaw. This doesn't fit in with the rest of him. He is visibly not at ease making a film about being in one's dotage; maybe he prefers to be remembered as the sprightly Daphne in Some Like It Hot and the fabulously neurotic Felix in The Odd Couple 1.
And Neil Simon? Well, he has made the COLOSSAL mistake of writing into Felix's script the F word on 2 occasions. This is so totally out of place that it literally beggars belief how Simon could even come close to thinking that swearing was necessary. It goes a very miserable way to almost totally ruining the film.
Some of the old magic was there but you had to struggle to see it in the script and in in Lemmon.
