The guy that was on the Bosom Buddies TV show is a widower. He isn't dealing with it well at work, so he takes some time off of work to go to Seattle. His son called a radio talk show and told the host that his Dad has trouble sleeping because he was lonely. The cute actress that had her face changed to look like the Joker from Batman hears the call, after she takes her fiance to meet her parents, and the story the Bosom Buddies guy and his son got to her.
The funniest lines are between the Bosom Buddy guy and the son, as they went through all the ladies that sent him letters.
Note: Letters are what we used to do before email.
Oh, and there's a funny scene with Meathead from All in the Family and the Bosom Buddy guy, too.
The Bosom Buddy guy starts to go out with some ladies, but Joker Face stalks him a little bit. I know stalking is a serious matter, but usually stalkers are weird looking people. Wait a minute. Okay, got it. Jokerface is stalking. Yup, makes sense.
The son starts hanging around this girl, and they cook up a plan to have the Bosom Buddies guy meet Jokerface on top of the Empire State building on Valentine's Day. Note: She would sneak away from her fiance to do this. That sounds like a Maury Povich show in the making if you ask me.
I've been on blind dates before, and "meet me on top of the Empire State building on Valentine's Day," is the weirdest thing I've ever heard of. It's bad enough waiting at a Starbuck's for someone to not show up, but The Empire State Building? What if the elevator wasn't working, and I had to climb the stairs all the way up. No way. Well, maybe if Jillian from The Biggest Loser was up there, she would actually be happy I would do that, and be all sweating climbing up all those stairs. Heck, she may even buy the coffee on our date (with Equal, of course).
So, Jokerface and the Bosom Buddy guy fall in love. The son was happy, and promised never to call up radio tak shows again.
Ya know at the end there, I really wanted King Kong to crawl up the side of the building and smile at them. That would have been perfect.
Oh right, King Kong couldn't have because he...
Hey, it's a movie and anything is possible, right? I also hope the Allergic fiance finds a nice pharmacist to marry. Just sayin'
