The Odd Couple
Film begins at dusk.
(1968, dir. Gene Saks, 105 mins, G)
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau star as mismatched roommates in this comedic film interpretation of Paul Simon’s Broadway play. When Felix’s (Lemmon’s) wife leaves him, his pal Oscar (Matthau) invites him to share his apartment. The two clash when Oscar’s slovenly ways infuriate neatnik Felix. A brief interlude to the bickering occurs when the gentlemen find themselves in the company of the Pigeon sisters who live next door. The witty, Oscar-nominated screenplay keeps the laughs coming to the end.
Enjoy a night of unusual and unexpected combinations.
