Best Jack Movies?


I've only watched Some Like It Hot and i thought he was brilliant.
What other movies would Jack fans recommend?

reply

Some recommendations:

Comedies:
Avanti!
The Fortune Cookie (Walter Matthau is especially hilarious as a crooked lawyer)
Grumpy Old Men
The Odd Couple
The Out of Towners

Dramas:
Glengarry Glen Ross
Missing
Save The Tiger
The China Syndrome
The Apartment
The Days of Wine and Roses (his finest dramatic performance)

He did a very funny movie back in the day titled "The War Between Men and Women" with Barbara Harris. Very funny, as I remember.....unfortunately, it has never come out on VHS, DVD, or Blu-ray, and it hasn't been televised (that I know of) since the early '80's, which is unfortunate.

Agree with many on the lists, but how can no one include How to Murder Your Wife? A first rate ensemble cast with Virna Lisi(!), Terry Thomas and Eddie Bracken.!the courtroom scene is priceless!

Our #1 fave Jack Lemmon movie of all time is "Good Neighbor Sam"! It's a RIOT and we've watched it a hundred times!
