The Odd Couple (Movies)

"I was a little weirdly disappointed because I had this idea that I'd get, like, this gangster-street-chic or some death-metal girl and we'd be, like, all Odd Couple, but me and Mac, it was just — whoosh — instant sisterhood."

The Odd Couple was a 1968 film starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau as two friends who drive each other nuts while trying to live together. Lemmon and Matthau also starred in the sequel, appropriately entitled The Odd Couple II in 1998, which still seems like it might be a little before Parker's time. Whatever the appropriate reference is, we tend to think that awesome-nerd-girl Mac and party-girl-airhead Parker are an Odd Couple, something Parker's annoying sunny disposition won't let her see.
