Willona meets her match
3 January 2017 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Florida, the Matchmaker" opens with Florida ready to attend the wedding of two longtime paramours, but Willona won't be going. James concludes that the divorcée is too picky: "women that play hard to get don't get got!" Willona finds weddings a drag, particularly the same people asking why she isn't married herself. When Florida meets the newly divorced Duane Poole (Lloyd Hollar), she instantly sets the wheels in motion to pair off Willona and Duane. James tries to discourage his wife from playing matchmaker, since she figures God was the one who started the whole thing with Adam and Eve! The couple do enjoy spending time together, but end up disappointing Florida by their resistance to marriage.
