Top 10 Walter Mattau & Jack Lemmon Movies

Walter Mattau and Jack Lemmon were both stars before they met each other, but somehow the God's of Amazing, decided to push the two of them together and create the ultimate comedy duo ever! Better than Abbot and Costello, better than Laurel and Hardy.

10. The Odd Couple 2

For the last project the two of them worked together on, the story and dialogue could have been better, but overall the two of them gave expectedly funny performances and I think it was a great goodbye for the both of them. Mattau passed away only two years later, to be followed very quickly by Lemmon only 9 months later. It seems they couldn't stay apart for very long. The two of them were like brothers and it showed in every one of their classically funny fights. After not seeing each other for decades, Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison are reunited when their children announce their wedding to each other. They of course get lost and robbed on the way to the wedding and spend the movie hitch hiking their way across the county.

9. Kotch

Jack Lemmon did NOT act in this film...he directed it. Kotch is the only movie Jack Lemmon ever directed and it's staring his best friend, Mr. Walter Matthau. Even though it's all the way back in 1971, Matthau already looks old enough to be retired. Mattau plays Joseph Kotcher, a retired traveling salesman who tries like a lost teenager to find himself as he takes a liking to caring for children and people in desperate need of help. He's treated like an old dog by his son and daughter in law, and his performance as the quintessential old dog reminds us all why we should cherish our short lives on this rock.

8. JFK

We all know that Oliver Stone did an incredible job explaining over and over again just how John F. Kennedy was shot. What we don't know all too well is that the greatest comedic duo ever were split apart in different scenes and cast in the same movie, both having only a small yet remarkably memorable scene. It's funny even as I watch Lemmon give such a glorious performance in Glen-Gary, Glen-Ross. I wish that Matthau would soon enter the scene and the two of them would go at it all over again. They are so good on their own, that together, it's almost inconceivable that they could get any better, but indeed they can.

7. Buddy Buddy

As Billy Wilder has done before, he writes and directs the tremendous duo in a very odd yet hilarious story about a henchman for the mob who is sidetracked from his hit by a disturbed suicidal man who just sidestepped outside onto the building's ledge. The two of them fight like usual only, Matthau is seen somewhat out of normal character.

6. Grumpier Old Men

The sequel to one of the greatest comedies ever created, the two old farts are back to fight each other during the summer, only a few weeks before their children tie the knot and marry each other. I wonder why this and the odd couple 2 features the two of them becoming in laws...maybe they always felt like family and wanted to express it on screen. While Lemmon won Ariel's love in the first movie, Matthau finds love in Sofia Loren who proves that age and beauty aren't related.

The top 5 walter matthau and jack lemmon movies, and other articles such as the top 10 woody allen movies, James Bond Villains and Nerd Movies are just a few of soon to be long list of Top 10 Movies. Suggestions for more Top 10 Lists are also encouraged!!!
