'The Sunshine Boys': 'All the Men & Women Merely Players'

By Michael S. GoldbergeriBerkshires Film Critic

I wish that I were reviewing one of the half-dozen movies certain to be made when this pox upon our house is no more. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services. It is my fondest hope that I've barely put a dent into this trove when they let the likes of me back into the Bijou.

…………………………………………………………….............................................................
 
I can't review Herbert Ross' perfect film adaptation of Neil Simon's "The Sunshine Boys" (1975) without thinking about and acknowledging all that I learned about comedy from my college dormmate Tom Clinton Jr., now Dr. Thomas Clinton. Forever taking a comedy writer's correspondence course — it seemed he was on the "Characterization" chapter for at least two semesters — he would regularly pop into my room to regale me of the latest bit of shtick he had gleaned from his zealously dedicated study of what tickles the funny bone.
 
"So, these two guys meet on the street. Guy One says to Guy Two, 'Didn't I meet you in Chicago?'
Guy Two says, 'I've never been in Chicago.'
Guy One says, 'Y'know, come to think of it, I've never been in Chicago, either.'
'Yeah,' concludes Guy Two, 'It must have been two other guys.'"
