THE ODD COUPLE (Theatrical Release USA 1968)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Odd Couple—highly creative—contains its fair share of comedy with the terrific interactions between Walter Mathau and Jack Lemmon. The story draws and defines its characters deeply and well. The storyline runs along an adult theme and makes a good adult share. It’s worth its watch.
