Rating: NR Year: 1966 Category: Comedy
Director: Billy Wilder Time: 125 min. Writer: I.A.L. Diamond & Billy Wilder

Mine: Meaner than it has to be, but still enjoyable. Matthua and Lemmon are always terrific.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Biting Wilder comedy about TV cameraman (Lemmon) injured during football game and shyster lawyer (Matthau) who exaggerates damages for insurance purposes. Matthau's Oscar-winning performance hits home. Scripted by Wilder and partner I. A. L. Diamond. Panavision.
