Watch Buddy Buddy - Alternative Versions.
For what turned out to be his final film, Billy Wilder decided to adapt
the French black comedy L'Emmerdeur to America and he and his writing
partner I.A.L. Diamond came up with Buddy Buddy.
As it turned out I saw this film back to back with Wilder's Kiss Me
Stupid. In that one, a whole lot of talented actors couldn't raise it
above mediocrity. But in watching Buddy Buddy I failed to see why this
one was slammed as bad as it was. It's not anything close to what Jack
Lemmon and Walter Matthau did in The Fortune Cookie or even in the
remake of The Front Page. Still Buddy Buddy does have its moments.
Of course the film does hinge on the incomparable chemistry between
Lemmon and Matthau and they save the film essentially for Wilder. They
are two total strangers whom chance throws together at a most
Matthau is a professional hit-man who's been given the job of killing
three stoolies who are to testify at a mob trial. He's got the first
two and has a plan set for number three.
Then of course he meets Lemmon who is despondent over his wife leaving
him for a fake sex therapist. He checks into the same hotel in the room
next to Matthau who is readying his hit and tries to commit suicide.
For the rest of the film Matthau is forced to take an interest in this
schnook's marital problems to keep from committing suicide and bringing
a swarm of police to the hotel. Matthau and Lemmon get into some pretty
funny situation as there seems to be no end in sight to what can go
wrong with a well thought out plan.
Lemmon's wife is played by Paula Prentiss and their marriage seems very
much modeled on the one Lemmon had in The Fortune Cookie. Things work
out just about the same way for the unhappy couple.
Things kind of work out for Matthau too in a rather unbelievable way
for which you will have to see Buddy Buddy. And while it's not like
some of the great Wilder classics of the Fifties when Billy was at his
creative best, it's far from the worst film he could have gone out on.
