Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

It's unfortunate that the last time these two comedy legends teamed up falls so short of showcasing their individual and collective genius. The flat, predictable script mostly rehashes old bits and doesn't offer the actors much to work with, but both Lemmon and Matthau inhabit their familiar skins comfortably. The buddy-picture road trip story is conventional and predictable. There really isn't much to interest kids here. The only thing The Odd Couple II has to offer, really, is a stroll down memory lane for fans of the original. And even the most ardent fans would be better off going back to the original if they're in the mood to take that stroll.
