Episode 577: Buddy Buddy (1981)

Buddy Buddy (1981) Special Guest: Miles Chapin
Guest Co-Hosts: Kat Ellinger, Heather Drain

Heather Drain and Kat Ellinger join Mike to discuss Billy Wilder’s Buddy Buddy (1981). The movie is yet another pairing of Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. This time they’re filling the shoes of Lino Ventura and Jacques Brel in this remake of Edouard Molinaro’s L'Emmerdeur.

Matthau plays Trabucco, a ruthless hitman, while Lemmon plays Victor Clooney, a milquetoast whose wife left him three months prior. Naturally they get thrown together in the unlikeliest of circumstances and hilarity ensues.

The episode features an interview with Miles Chapin and a loving tribute to Klaus Kinski.
