It’s nice to see the odd couple back in action in front of the cameras. Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon are wonderful as two old buddies who bicker constantly but remain constant companions. Their camaraderie is threatened when a new beauty (a lovely Ann-Margret) moves into town, forcing them into a showdown of male prowess that will determine who gets the girl. Daryl Hannah, Burgess Meredith and Kevin Pollak also star in this charming family comedy that is followed by an even better sequel in 1995.
