The Sunshine Boys

An absolutely hilarious and enjoyable Neil Simon film that blows most of his other films right out of the water! Walter Matthau plays a has-been comedy star who is reunites with his partner, played by George Burns. These two, after forty years, go together like oil and water. The acting by both Matthau and Burns hit the bulls-eye. Matthau received an Academy Award nomination for best actor, and George Burns won the best supporting actor award. Truly enjoyable and a must for fans of comedies. George Burn's first film since 1939! Don't miss F. Murray Abraham in his first movie role (you know, the guy who killed Mozart).
