Synopsis

Louis and Frank Di Buffoni are cousins who meet up after years apart. When they were young they used to sing togther, and their love of schmaltzy tunes from the 60's is undiminished. Frank is back from Sicily where he was a beautician. Louis is running a small moving company in New York. Both are terribly old-fashioned, ill-tempered, rather naive and exact opposites and now for some reason that fate has stepped in, they're ready to revive their singing duo days--even if it kills them.
