When his wife leaves him, prim, finicky Felix Unger moves in with his poker buddy, Oscar Madison, a notorious slob, and . . . Well, does anybody NOT know the premise of playwright Simon's most overexposed comedy? This version, recorded before a live audience, isn't particularly good but isn't bad either. Just uninspired. The fine L.A. performers, including Nathan Lane cast against type as Oscar, just doesn't quite connect with the play, which is still strong enough to deliver plenty of laughs.
