Willie Clark (Eric Jon Subkoviak) has been leading a solitary existence.
With weekly visits from his nephew, Ben,
who also acts as his manager.
When CBS wants to do a retrospective on great comedy
teams, Ben brings Al Lewis (Michael James) back into
Willie's life. The two haven't talked in a dozen years.
When they begin rehearsing "The Doctor Sketch," Willie and Al
are reminded of why they broke up in the first place.
Though it does bring back some nice memories, with the comedic nurse (RaeAnne Carlson).
The effects are ultimately wearing on Willie, who suffers
a heart attack and requires nursing (Lindsay Odegaard).
Though in the end, Willie and Al, "The Sunshine Boys,"
are able to recapture some of their prior joyfulness.
