If you fed The Odd Couple into one of those Internet gizmos that translates material into another language (in this case, Norwegian) and then back into English again, you might get something like the cockeyed and curiously winsome comedy Elling. Two very different men—the fussbudget is played by Denis O'Hare, the slob by Brendan Fraser—again share an apartment, but here they are literally crazy. It takes a while for the show’s idiosyncrasies to click, but the marvelous O’Hare is a whirlwind of comic variety in his tense fits of petulance.—Adam Feldman
