For Richer, For Poorer
17 August 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Well cast, well made comedy about a self made businessman (Lemmon) who liquidates all his assets to get a new lease on life and show his lazy son a lesson. Lemmon and Silverman are perfect as on screen father and son, who would later go on to work together in "The Odd Couple II." (Silverman plays Walter Matthau's son in that film.)
