Jack Lemmon & Walter Matthau great together as usual. Matthau's son and Lemmon's daugher are getting married and the two must make it back home to attend the wedding. Mishaps occur along the way as usual when the two get together. Keeps getting funnier each time the two end up at the same police station.

Movie Reviews

Oscar and Felix are Back
Julie A Ross | Pleasant Hill, CA United States | 06/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, two comedy greats, pair up again in this hilarious film. In The Odd Couple II, it has been 17 years since Oscar and Felix last saw each other. They are reunited to go to their children's wedding. Along the way they get arrested three times, encounter two lovely ladies Thelma and Holly, and get on each other's nerves no end. After making such a hit as Odd Couple, making a sequel was risky business, but Walter and Jack pulled it off! Sadly it would be their last film together."
Oh, no...

"What a disappointment. Watching Matthau and Lemmon struggle so hard to make this clanker enjoyable was nothing less than depressing. Part of the enjoyment of the first Odd Couple was the clash of personalities between Felix's anal retentive, obsessive/compulsion and Oscar's boorish impatience. This film hardly touches upon that struggle and, instead, becomes a watered-down version of one of the Grumpy Old Men movies. In fact, this movie seems like a compilation of other Neil Simon movies. When Felix and Oscar get lost in the Californian desert, it's "The Out of Towners", except in reverse. When Oscar's son gets cold feet on his wedding day and camps out on the roof, it's like "Plaza Suite."

Also the use of the F-word and of middle fingers just makes the movie seem all that much more desperate for laughs. Lastly, the Florida/California milieu is just inappropriate for these two neurotic but iconic New Yorkers."
Just so Funny!!!

"What can you say about these two? FUNNY!!!! I could hardly catch my breath because I was laughing so hard. True, II was not the same as the original. You also really don't get the flavor of messy-man verses neat-noid-man, but just the fact they are stuck with one another again and they keep getting in these absolutely ridiculous situations is just to good to pass up. You want to laugh? Then get this movie!"
