Editorial Reviews

Mike Nichols directed the 1965 stage production of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, but while Nichols went on to become a vitally intelligent director of contemporary comedy, Simon's career thrived in the 1970s and '80s before dwindling towards sentimental fluff like this amusing but mildly disappointing sequel. Closer to Grumpy Old Men than the wry wit of Simon's original play and 1968 screen adaptation, the movie finds former roommates Oscar (Walter Matthau) and Felix (Jack Lemmon) reluctantly reuniting for the wedding of Oscar's son to Felix's daughter. When they get sidetracked in California, the road-movie formula unleashes the comedic chemistry of Lemmon and Matthau (which alone makes the movie worthwhile), but it's too casual to match the original's depth or dramatic foundation. Simon and Grumpy director Howard Deutch could have deepened the Oscar-Felix relationship to make it funnier and more emotionally involving, but instead they've played it safe with some good laughs in the kind of sketch comedy that Nichols would avoid. Simon's capable of much better than this, but Lemmon-Matthau fans will have a good time anyway. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Oscar and Felix are Back June 13, 2004
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.

Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau team up again in this teriffic comedy as the infamous Odd Couple.After being away from each other for seventeen years, Oscar Madison (Matthau) and Felix Unger (Lemmon)meet again,this time to travel to the wedding of Oscar's son and Felix's daughter. On the way they encounter tons of crazy characters and situations,after losing Felix's expensive suitcase-along with their map-and forgetting the name of the town they are driving to! This hilarious road trip is a great display of the famous team of Lemmon and Matthau

5.0 out of 5 stars Just so Funny!!! December 16, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars When I need to laugh - this movie is it! January 3, 2007
No matter how many times I watch this movie and already know what's coming - I crack up laughing. These guys are at their best as they grumble and complain from one scrape to another while they work their way cross country to a wedding of their children. I think this is the best one Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon have done together.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine movie...Walter Matthau will be missed! July 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Odd Couple II came close to beating the quality of the first movie. Though it did remind me of the "Grumpy Old Men" movies, they fell into the old roles of Felix and Oscar. Now that we've lost Mr. Matthau, this movie will become an American Treasure!

4.0 out of 5 stars The dynamic duo is back in their final film together September 3, 2000
By Batman
Format:VHS Tape
Well they are back. Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in another film together that shows how great they work together and what great comes from it as a result. And sadly, Odd Couple 2 is the last film for this dynamic duo due to Matthau's death in July of 2000. This film picks up 30 years after the original. Felix is living in NYC and Oscar in Florida, the two havent seen eachother in 17 years. But they are brought back together when Oscar's(Matthau)son is getting married to Felix's(Lemmon)daughter. They meet up at the L.A. airport to take a road trip up to where they live. Many mishaps during their trip cause for a delay of gettting their and lots of comedic fun. This film isnt the duos best, but it certainly is very good. I have never seen the 1st one and if you want to see this, u dont have to see the original. All you have to know is that Oscar Madison is a slob and Felix Unger is a neat and paranoid. And of course that they used to live together. If you are a fan of either one of these stars of them both as a duo, this is a must see. Its sad that this is their last film together. If you liked this and/or want to see anyother of their films together i would defintly reccomend Grumpy and Grumpier Old Men, and Out To Sea. Rated PG-13 for language.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comical Knockout December 1, 2005
There are some people that get along perfectly. It is almost as if they are made for each other. Oscar Madison (Walter Matthau) and Felix Ungar (Jack Lemmon) are definitely not some of those people.

The Odd Couple 2, directed by Howard Deutch, is a comedy based on Neil Simon's hilarious play about two ex-roommates (Madison and Ungar) brought together after seventeen years for the marriage of their children. Madison is the "pig", and Ungar is the "human vacuum cleaner", and together they are absolutely priceless. After meeting at the airport to begin their road trip, the pair faces continuous obstacles on their way to the wedding before finally arriving.

As the disorganized Oscar Madison, Walter Matthau delivers an utterly brilliant performance. His portrayal of Madison is flawless from beginning to end. Quite the flirt, Madison tries to convince some women that he is "not as old as [he] looks." According to him, he had "this plastic surgery done recently, and the quack doctor botched it up." This is only one of his many desperate attempts for his "candle to glow one last time," that Matthau has down to a tee. A total and complete slob, Madison does not hesitate to drop his trash from his apartment window and leave the cats to clean up the mess. It is this carelessness that Matthau exemplifies so brilliantly.

Jack Lemmon is absolutely terrific as Felix Ungar, an extremely organized man that lives for cleanliness and order. There is no doubt that Lemmon was the man for the job, with his many quirks and idiosyncrasies. Ungar has a laminated suitcase as well as scheduled times to eat, sleep, and use the restroom. His need to have food every four hours is a result of his "low sugar condition.
