THE ODD COUPLE really holds up as a smart dramedy (or comedy, if you want to ignore the more serious elements of the story), the basis of many dynamic duos in pop culture since. Without THE ODD COUPLE, we'd have no LETHAL WEAPON or TWO AND A HALF MEN. The buddy genre owes much to THE ODD COUPLE. I appreciated the clever jokes and how well crafted it all is. It's as I expected, though, considering the status this film possesses still to this day. I recommend it.

A Five Star Comedy Classic from Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau. The remaining cast members are all great character actors and do a great job. This may be Neil Simon's most popular work of writing as it was both a hit both as a movie and a play. Most of the movie is just like the "Odd Couple TV Show" which played for years. There are so many funny situations these two characters can get into. It is the story of two completely opposite personalities living together. I can see why both men were divorced. If you haven't seen the "Odd Couple" you are missing one of our countries finest comedy classics!.

The CPL copy is badly scratched. If you get it, return it and ask for a copy from another location.

"It took me 3 hours to figure out that F.U. stood for Felix Unger!"
