Things don't seem to change much in Wabasha County: Max and John are still fighting after 35 years, Grandpa still drinks, smokes, and chases women , and nobody's been able to catch the fabled "Catfish Hunter", a gigantic catfish that actually smiles at fishermen who try to snare it. Six months ago John married the new girl in town (Ariel), and people begin to suspect that Max might be missing something similar in his life. The only joy Max claims is left in his life is fishing, but that might change with the new owner of the bait shop.Written by

There's one scene where Jack Lemmon has to sleep over at Walter Matthau's, and he has to deal with how sloppy he lives: Very much like their most famous movie, The Odd Couple. See more »
Max is listening to a tape recorder, trying to learn Italian. When Jacob walks in he stops the tape. When Jacob looks at the tape recorder, it is shown in a close up. The play button is now down and the cassette is turning. See more »
I just met a girl named Maria! And now I plainly see, she's not the bitch I thought she would be!

Outtakes also show Walter Matthau and 'Jack Lemmon' both forgetting their lines, including the names of their characters' respective love interests. See more »
Nothing's different in this lovely follow up to the sleeper hit original. Lemmon and Matthau still jab at each other while Sophia Loren practically steals the film with her still astonishing beauty. Things only get better with age.
