Always great to watch Jack and Walt
on 15 December 2012
A gentle comedy starring Hollywood veterans Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in another enjoyable romp, this time on a cruise ship. As stated elsewhere in previous reviews, this is no "The Odd Couple", but then, nothing is in my opinion - that is my all-time favourite comedy.
There is a great supporting cast including Donald "Singing In The Rain" O'Connor. In fact, I thought the writers could have given him a bigger part to showcase his humour and dancing (remember the "Make 'Em Laugh" scene in the aforestated film? ) I know he was a lot younger then but he could still have had a more prominent part in "Out To Sea." Good to see him nonetheless.
In a nutshell, good reliable performances all round and a reminder of real Hollywood talent that no longer exists.
