What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Neil Simon's The Odd Couple is Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau at the top of their "buddy" game. The movie has some grown-up plot elements (divorce, contemplation of suicide), but it's always lighthearted, focusing on character rather than jokes, and the farcical moments are very funny without being highly exaggerated. Though there's a certain amount of sophistication to the snappy dialogue and opposites-attract humor, the perennial slob and the fastidious hypochondriac are amusing on many levels. Older kids and teens who appreciate classic comedies and wonderful performances will find much to like. Made in the 1960s, the movie has smoking (both cigars and cigarettes), a brief scene with scantily clad go-go dancers, and some mild sexual innuendo, and "hell" and "damn" are heard several times.
