Ever since Neil Simon created Felix Unger and Oscar Madison, the odd couple has been a cinematic staple. Lately, high-concept filmmakers have been playing can-you-top-this with increasingly bizarre mix-and-match characters, leading the likable James Belushi to be cast as a straight man for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Russian cop (Red Heat), an irascible dog (K-9), and, in Homer & Eddie, Whoopi Goldberg. Belushi and Goldberg do appear to have comedic potential together, but they’ll need a different movie to confirm it.
