I was very disappointed in this film. Although listed as a comedy, The Fortune Cookie lacks not only any comedic elements but, in my opinion, also the trademark Lemmon/Matthau chemistry. Matthau plays a shyster lawyer who convinces Lemmon, his brother-in-law, to go along with an insurance scam after an accident. Go into this expecting a drama, not a comedy, and you may like it. Still, as a drama, there was a lot of missed potential in the developing of subplots. Matthau won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for this role, so I may just be missing some deeper philosophical angle ... but I was expecting a comedy. You know, the kind where you laugh?
