Neil Simon has a special genius, for finding the great hilarity in ordinary people doing everyday things. Like two divorced men who decide to share a New York apartment. That's the premise of The Odd Couple, though there's nothing odd in the casting of the two Oscar winning talents like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The two veteran funnymen work together with the precision timing of a Vaudeville team, but always with bright spontaneity. Lemmon play fussy Felix, fastidious to a fault. He proves that cleanliness is next to insanity. Matthau is Iscar, who wreaks havoc on a tidy room with the speed and thoroughness of a tornado. An enduring and endearing picture with the intelligence one usually misses in comedies.
