Buddy, Buddy is a dark comedy about a professional hit man whose mission is interrupted by a suicidal man. With only one remaining witness to kill that would otherwise testify against the mafia, trusted assassin Trabucco (Walter Matthau) has set up shop in a hotel across the street from the courthouse. But he is immediately distracted by the sounds of Victor Clooney (Jack Lemmon), a man in the room next to him trying to hang himself. The sad, forlorn fellow is ready to give up on life after his wife has left him, and has chosen the same hotel in which to do it. Concerned that Victor's desperate situation will attract attention to his otherwise inconspicuous stakeout spot, Trabuco befriends Victor and accompanies him to confront his wife Celia (Paula Prentiss) and the fraudulant sex therapist she has left him for, Dr. Hugo Zuckerbrot (Klaus Kinski). Their journey jump starts a series of hilarious events that are sure to lead to a ridiculous outcome. The last film by legendary director Billy Wilder, Buddy Buddy has fun all the way through, picking on everyone and everything in the process.moreless
