The Odd Couple (1968)

Two friends try sharing an apartment, but their ideas of housekeeping and lifestyles are as different as night and day.

A classic, if not perfect comedy,  an ideal showcase for the two stars, it's still highly entertaining as ever, and way superior to most present day comedies.

On renewed viewing: still as enjoyable as I remember it.

Halliwell**: "Straight filming of a funny play which sometimes seems lost on the wide screen, but the performances are fine."

Maltin***: "Lemmon's realistic performance makes character melancholy instead of funny; other surefire comic sequences remain intact."
