MGM, Wilder, Lemmon, Mattau, and Prentiss
- David Atkins
MGM had seen better days by the time this film was produced but financed this Billy Wilder film. Wilder who made so many hits at United Artists ( now UA is a dormant operating subsidiary of equally dormant MGM) left UA and cast his reliable stars Jack Lemmon and Walther Matthau in this sly film. Lemmon and Wilder had a great rapport off screen but this film reflects little of it. Gorgeous Paula Prentiss who was made famous by a series of great MGM films when Prentiss was under contract to the studio in the 60's returned to her old studio for a slight but funny role. Of note neither Wilder, nor Lemmon, nor Matthau ever mentioned this film much and to my knowledge Ms. Prentiss does not mention working with Wilder. Thus the title of my review MGM, Wilder, Lemmon, Matthau, and Prentiss had all seen better days when this film was released. I believe this is the great Billy Wilder's finale as a Film Director. Wilder in his great career directed Double Indemnity, Sunset Blvd, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, et al with stars such as Holden, Hepburn, Bogart, Novak, Lemmon, Swanson, Douglas, and Marilyn Monroe among many others. Great Director.
Whatever happened to "Buddy Buddy"?
Even if it's not a very good movie, "Buddy Buddy" should be seen for what it is. The final collaboration of Billy Wilder/Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau. There is so much history of these three that all the films should be available. When I saw it in the theatre this is what I was thinking. And while I don't remember much of it I'd love to see it again with a new perspective.

Buddy Buddy is a very funny movie. Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau are great as always. This is a must see for all movie fans.
Jack Lemmon&Walter Matthau forever the best friend!
If your a fan of Matthau and Lemmon you must see this one.Absolutely chock-full to the brim with side splitting laughs.Hysterically funny.Laugh til you cry knee slapping fun.
