Willie Clark, a crotchety comedian from television's golden age, still lives in New York, looking for work. His agent, Nancy (Parker), who is also his niece, gets him auditions when she can, but his attitude usually costs him the part. So Nancy is thrilled when Warner Brothers calls and wants Uncle Willie to perform in their Christmas blockbuster. The only catch is that he will have to reunite with his former partner, Al Lewis -- the two haven't spoken for eight years. Based on a teleplay by Neil Simon.
A screen adaption of Neil Simon's hilarious story of two legendary comedians (Allen, Falk) and their return to the stage after a lengthy hiatus from show business and each other.
