The Neil Simon comedy that lit up Broadway for more than two years shines again in this flawed but still funny screen adaptation.

...a durable classic, the sort of comedy that doesn't try to yank laughs by cramming its fist down our throats.
Mark Bourne, Film.com  full review
 
For all its overfamiliarity, this is a good play, easily Simon's best, and Matthau and Lemmon inhabit it with grace and style.
Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader  full review
 
An irresistible double act from Lemmon and Matthau.
Tom Milne, Time Out  full review
 
It does well as an evening's entertainment.
