Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, “Grumpy Old Men”
Grumpy guys: John Gustafson (Lemmon) and Max Goodman (Matthau)
Matthau and Lemmon share the crown as the undisputed kings of Grumpsville. The “Grumpy Old Men” movies highlighted these late-great actors at their crustiest. As life-long neighbors whose bickering friendship consists of nit-picking and complaining, the grouches become seriously snide when a lady (Ann-Margaret) gets in the way.
