When Academy Award(r) winners Walter Matthau and Robin Williams team up as a pair of lovable losers pursued by a psychopathic killer, you can bet that madness and mayhem are not far behind. Donald Quinelle (Williams), a rising sales executive, is sacked by his boss's pet parrot the same day that Sonny Paluso (Matthau) watches his gas station go up in flames. Drowning their sorrows at a coffee shop,the two New Yorkers disarm a would-be bandit Jack Locke (Jerry Reed), and briefly become media heroes - then quickly learn about the price and perils of survival in an insane world. Jack is freed by a bureaucratic slipup and goes gunning for Sonny and Donald, who discover that their survival depends on their friendship at all costs. The unique blend of Williams' frenzied humor and Matthau's subtle wit makes the Survivors an outrageously hilarious comedy.
I watched this movie when it came out in the 80s. Just as funny today. A classic if you are a Robbin Williams or Walter Matthau fan. Jerry Reed also rounds out the cast. Read morePublished 18 days ago by AddisonJ
