When one thinks of the films and stage plays of writer, Neil Simon, popular titles like "The Odd Couple" and "The Goodbye Girl" usually come to mind for most people. But I always think of Simon's wonderful show biz comedy, "The Sunshine Boys". Over the years I would catch here and there, bits and pieces of this 1975 film on late night television. For some reason, I never got to see the whole thing. Well finally this chuckle inducing movie has come to DVD and I love it! In the story we meet Willy Clark (Walter Matthau) a septuagenarian and former half of the legendry, Vaudeville comedy team of 'Lewis & Clark'. He now spends his days traveling the streets of NYC, going on casting calls. Willy drives both directors, casting people and his agent/nephew, Ben Clark (Richard Bejamin) crazy with his stubborn and obnoxious behavior. It looks like forced retirement is in the wings. But at the last moment, Ben comes up with a big job offer. ABC television wants Willy and his former partner, Al Lewis (George Burns) to have a one time only reunion and bring back a 'Lewis and Clark' sketch for a "History of Comedy" special. There is just one...little catch. These two elderly, comedians literally can't stand the sight of each other! Just getting them into the same room is a major undertaking. This humorous film shows us how this original 'odd couple', fight it out during their reunion and eventually come to terms with each other. Herbert Ross's direction is steady and well done. But what really makes this film is Neil Simon's story and hilarious back & forth dialogue, which is filled with both zingers and heart.I love how as Willy leaves his botched casting call, he gives a speech to his nephew, Ben on what words can get a laugh. "Alka-Selzer is funny...Read more ›

Hilarious, incredible, cynical and just about every emotion and nuance are on display in this vibrant film about that great comedy team.
Matthau is simply at his zenith as W. Clark, king of all Kvetchers and mostly everything else. You should be warned...Matthau,s gate contains so much body language that you cant resist.Once in a great while he does listen to a very frustrated Dick Benjamin( who is terrific). Mr. Clark, cant open his own door easily, gets trappped in elevators..cant read directions ..cant find or read the copy...and lives in a world where seemingly everyone has gone mad..except for him.??
Through the laughs we see some meloncholy...just a bit mind you but enough. Burns is droll as ever as Mr Clark's old partner..
During one of the most funniest bits ever Clark gets " Fingered" and " Spritzed" Al this while he issues his revenge with a high pitched " ENTER"..
Truly a one of a kind film..its almost heartbreaking to know that a film like this can never ..never be made again..EVER!

For a period of time this DVD was out of stock on Amazon.....then a couple of weeks ago it was relisted and I ordered it. Some movie critics express disappointment in the transfer.......NOT SO, this transfer is great and far superior to previous releases on VHS, etc. Of course the content is a comedy masterpiece with none stop humor throughout.......the casting is perfect.....I'll watch this one several times a year. I never get tired of it, definitely a five star presentation.

A masterpiece! I must have been about 10 years old (1980), the first time I saw this movie....it's almost 2003 and I laughed as much now as I did then (it's Walter, for goodness sakes, how can you not laugh)! Uncle Willy will keep you in constant stitches!!!
I'm anxiously awaiting the DVD version so I can purchase it!!!

I watched this movie about 100's as a kid....it's been 8-10 years since I last saw it...that is until this past weekend (12/22/02)..and let me tell you, this movie made me laugh just as much as it did the first 100 's I saw it (in the 70's)! Walter & George...what a pair! I can only imagine the side stitches I'd have if Jack Lemmon made an appearance in this flick, too! I highly recommend this film to those in need of some laughter!
This film needs to be on DVD!

Walter Matthau is one half of a famous Vaudville comedy team, living in New York and still fancying himself a show biz hot ticket. His agent is his nephew Richard Benjamin who each time he visits his Uncle's apartment must brace himself for senility, insults, and taunts that he can't find his Uncle work. An opportunity falls in his lap when a network wants to put together a comedy special including a reunion of the old duo. Only problem is in reality Matthau and his old partner, played by George Burns, totally retired and living in Jersey, hate each other. Matthau is particularly good as the cantakerous comedian and has many priceless scenes with the harried Benjamin.
