The Odd Couple

Classic comedy starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau as Felix Unger and Oscar Madison; two divorced men sharing an apartment together. This is seemingly a rather ordinary and non-problematic scenario, but Felix Unger is a bona fide neat freak, and Oscar Madison is a complete slob. Pretty soon, these two bachelors get on each other's nerves resulting in hilarious consequences! This is probably Neil Simon's most successful play. Not only was this turned into a famous movie, but an Emmy Award winning television series and a sequel in 1998. It also established the excellent Lemmon/Matthau team.
