The Sunshine Boys

1975 Rated PG 1hr 51m

Think The Odd Couple for the octogenarian set. Walter Matthau and George Burns have never been better (or more cantankerous) as two faded vaudeville legends -- Lewis and Clark -- who reteam for a television special about the history of comedy. Trouble is, the two geezers can't stand each other. Matthau and Burns are wonderful to watch in this vintage comedy penned by Neil Simon and directed by Herbert Ross.
