A complete waste of time

Unless you are trying to watch all of Jack Lemmon's or Matthew Broderick's films stay away from this. 78 minutes of conversation between the 2 actors. I thought it was awful. Nothing interesting happened and the conversation never developed. The viewer never learns much more about the characters and after awhile doesn't care.
