HOLLYWOOD -- An odd couple is the name of the game in an upcoming buddy movie. In Universal's comedy "Pure Luck," Danny Glover and Martin Short team up to go looking for a missing woman known to be incredibly unlucky. As they retrace her steps, Glover hopes that Short, who is incredibly unlucky too, will stumble into the same pitfalls as the woman. The script derives from Francis Veber's French comedy, "La Chevre" ("The Goat").
Meanwhile, C. Thomas Howell and Wallace Shawn make another odd pair of detectives in RCA-Columbia's "Nickel and Dime." They play bounty hunters who search for heirs to large fortunes.
