  • It's true comedy, the best kind where you can laugh with it and not at it

      Coming from the mind of Neil Simon, 1968’s The Odd Couple was a pure delight. Simon created two opposing characters in Felix Unger, a photographer, and Oscar Madison, a sports writer. Unger was neat to an extreme, while Madison was the

      king of mess. Having these two polar opposites come together was genius.

      Their story is known to most, made famous as much by the subsequent TV series’ opening. Two divorced men sharing an apartment try to make a go of it without killing each other in the process.

      Jack Lemmon was absolutely perfect as Felix. Lemmon’s ability to play neurotic and nervous work so well here. He’s funny and so identifiable for neat freaks of the world. In contrast, I can’t imagine anyone ...

      but the rugged and loud mouthed Walter Matthau as the gruffy and scruffy Oscar. He’s all bark and only a little bite. Together, they make a dynamic combination.

      The movie is full of laughs as neat meats mess. This is good

      humor, too, humor that means something without being hurtful or vulgar. It’s true comedy, the best kind where you can laugh with it and not at it. I loved it.

      There’s a great supporting cast, too. The Odd Couple is a definite winner.
