'The Odd Couple' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Mar 26, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The classic comedy based on the play by Neil Simon will hit Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'The Odd Couple' for Blu-ray on June 4.

Neil Simon has a special genius for finding the great hilarity in ordinary people doing everyday things. Like two divorced men who decide to share a New York apartment. That’s the premise of The Odd Couple, though there’s nothing odd in the casting of two Oscar®-winning talents like Jack Lemmon and Walter Mathau. The two veteran funnymen work together with the precision timing of a vaudeville team, but always with bright spontaneity. Lemmon plays fussy Felix, fastidious to a fault. He proves that cleanliness is next to insanity. Matthau is Oscar, who wreaks havoc on a tidy room with the speed and thoroughness of a tornado. An enduring and endearing picture, with the intelligence one usually misses in comedies.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the suggested list price has been set at $19.98.
