Even the best of friends can make the worst of roommates. Neil Simon's mismatched couple is butting heads again in this gender twist on his mega-popular 1965 comedy. It's now the '80s as messy Olive Madison and neat freak Florence Ugar come to live together following their respective failed marriages. But it's a hilariously challenged pairing as these two, with the help of a circle of Trivial Pursuit-playing friends and a pair of handsome Spanish neighbors, survive three weeks as the most mismatched roommates of all time.
