The Odd Couple II may have been penned by the prequel's original playwright, but it's got nothing on the '70s TV sitcom. Simon's tired jokes fail to revive the love-hate magic of Oscar (Matthau) and Felix (Lemmon) in this geriatric remake of the classic buddy story. The two over-the-hill friends are reunited by in-lawhood and meet with numerous roadside disasters en route to their kids' wedding.
