After his marriage goes south,TV newswriter Felix Ungar attempts to commit suicide in a cheap hotel room and fails. Feeling a complete failure, he makes his way to the apartment of his best friend, a divorced sportswriter named Oscar Madison, for a weekly poker game. Oscar offers to share his eight room apartment with Felix who accepts. What neither of the know is that they are complete opposites. Soon Oscar's disregard for tidiness sends Felix through the roof and Felix's obsession with order and his hypocondria are driving Oscar nuts. They can live in apartment together, that's clear, but will they be able to keep from killing each other? Two brilliant comedians, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, make this story of friendship and tolerance absolutely hilarious while still maintaining the sweetness and warmth of the story. They make Neil Simon's play come to life and create a comical pairing which is very hard to surpass
