Storyline

It has been seventeen years now since Oscar and Felix saw each other for the last time. Oscar is living in Florida, Felix in New York. One day, Oscar is called by his son Brucey who invites him to his wedding to Felix' daughter Hannah next Sunday in California. Oscar and Felix meet again at Los Angeles International Airport and take a rental car in order to go to San Malina for the wedding. The trip develops into an odyssey, starting with Oscar forgetting Felix' suitcase at the Budget station, going over to the complete loss of the directions (and the car), several difficulties with the police, a dead person, a toupet, underwear and revenge-hungry Cowboys and ending up with Felix meeting the "one and only" woman. But the wedding has to be reached on time. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Goofs

When Felix and Oscar are called out of the holding cell, Felix says "If we go down, you go down with us" to the truck driver. As he says this it cuts between two shots quickly, and in the first shot when he says, "If we go down ..." his mouth isn't moving. See more »

Quotes

[In the middle of the desert]
Oscar Madison: Look instead of complaining, why don't you look around for a telephone.
Felix Ungar: What the hell makes you think there'd be a telephone anywhere out here? This is probably where they test those nuclear bombs.
Oscar Madison: Well they would have to call somebody to find out if they went off wouldn't they?
