 See 2nd paragraph for Pryor & Wilder. I've turned off both Bill & Ted movies after 20 minutes, which many people who aren't holding a bong tend to do. Lemmon & Matthau strike me as one of the most overrated movie duos; the best film where they have a lot of scenes together is a straight adaptation of a Broadway comedy (The Odd Couple), Matthau is best on his own in The Fortune Cookie, and they made several that Matthau himself admitted were bad (The Front Page, Grumpy Old Men).
