Phillip the neighbor boy comes into money
4 September 2017 | by (New York USA) – See all my reviews

Phillip has a wild imagination and shows Felix and Oscar $2000.00 that he claims he robbed from a bank.

Some amusing scenes as Felix and Oscar try to get the truth out of precocious Phillip, finally getting it after Murray the cop puts him through the third degree and threatens to jail Felix and Oscar for the crime. Funny moments at the end where Felix and Oscar find the real owners of the money, who turn out to be another neat freak and slob,older versions of the odd couple.
