I hadn't seen this before and was surprised by the black and white - box suggests colour. Lemmon and Matthau, as always, delightful in zany plot about insurance scam. Good rainy day entertainment.

Very funny. Wilder, Nathau and Lemmon, what a chemistry! I don't think anybody will ever repeat. Lawyers had of course to be witty, but this one (Nathau) exceeds them all. I recommend.

A little outdated and the style is out of fashion.

Excellent film, happily first viewed by myself courtesy of the good old BBC in the 70's, way back when they still showed decent films at Christmas (The Apartment etc) and every bit as enjoyable when watched again this weekend, & heaven knows on how many other occasions over the years!!.
I originally purchased this on the sadly dying Laserdisc format, but migrated when released on DVD for the convenience of not having to wrestle with 2 old disks and four sides. Think MGM have used the very same print for this issue as the minor imperfections in an otherwise superb image appear identical. Just go and buy it and immerse yourself in the fun, not sure why anyone would find the characters annoying, or feel that the film does not really go anywhere. The story finally returns full circle after closure of the failed scam to reveal both of the unwitting participants acting out the introduction, on the same playing field, this time with a small audience of somewhat bemused janitors and not thousands excited sports fans! GREAT STUFF!

Very good. The usual Lemmon/Matthau comic which follows in many more movies. Maybe it would have been better in colour.

I love this film - I watched it again over the weekend and it's as good as it ever was. Billy Wilder at his best.
