Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Mike Nichols directed the 1965 stage production of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, but while Nichols went on to become a vitally intelligent director of contemporary comedy, Simon's career thrived in the 1970s and 80s before dwindling towards sentimental fluff like this amusing but mildly disappointing sequel. Closer to Grumpy Old Men than the wry wit of Simon's original play and 1968 screen adaptation, the movie finds former roommates Oscar (Walter Matthau) and Felix (Jack Lemmon) reluctantly reuniting for the wedding of Oscar's son to Felix's daughter. When they get sidetracked in California, the road-movie formula unleashes the comedic chemistry of Lemmon and Matthau (which alone makes the movie worthwhile), but it's too casual to match the original's depth or dramatic foundation. Simon and Grumpy director Howard Deutch could have deepened the Oscar-Felix relationship to make it funnier and more emotionally involving, but instead they've played it safe with some good laughs in the kind of sketch comedy that Nichols would avoid. Simon's capable of much better than this, but Lemmon-Matthau fans will have a good time anyway. --Jeff Shannon

Format: VHS Tape
20 years after Felix Ungar drove Oscar Maddison to despair when he cleaned up the apartment, the classic american comedy duo of Lemmon and Matthau reprise possibly their greatest roles. The Odd Couple 2 is an example of that oh so rare occurence when the sequel to a very successful film is not just a sad parody of the original.
The storyline is just as simple, Felix and Oscar haven't seen each other since Oscar threw Felix out of the apartment when he cleaned it up (The Odd Couple), Oscar gets a letter from his son Brucie inviting him to his wedding in California, on arrival at the airport, Oscar suddenly realises the awful truth, that Brucie is to marry Felix's daughter. Worse, he bumps in Felix at the airport. Worse still, Felix persuades him to share a car to get to the wedding. And just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any worse, Felix is just as insfferable whilst Oscar is just as short tempered as either of them ever were.
The film follows their journey to the wedding including encounters with two "ladies" in a bar, a run in with a gang of drug smugglers, and the increasingly exasperated local sheriff. Some of the jokes are very old, but Matthau and Lemmon given them a rare freshness. The increasingly stressful look on Matthau's face as the film progresses is sheer perfection.
I laughed out loud from start to finish, exactly as I had done with the first film.

Grumpy Old men mark 3!This is very funny and is basically a rd movie with Oscar and Felix meeting up after a 30 year gap since "The Odd Couple",and yes,Lemmon still has trouble with his sinuses and some surprising bad language,but it all adds to the fun.Its a fair follow up.I recommend it as a companion to the original.

I laughed and laughed at Felix and Oscar. I dont usually like watching videos more than once or twice but have already watched it 10 times! Even my 20-somethings love it - and that has to be recommendation indeed...
Will get this one out and watch it every time i need an uplift.
Cant recommend it highly enough.
