House Calls

A rather good romantic comedy starring Walter Matthau and Glenda Jackson. Matthau is a doctor and he meets Jackson as a patient in a hospital run by senile Art Carney (who nearly steals the movie with his hilarious performance). It starts out fresh and funny but only ends up fresh. Matthau and Jackson, both highly distinguished actors, work very well together and consequently makes this flick genuinely enjoyable.
