Storyline

Lou sees his old girlfriend, Charlene, off in the distance. Seeing her brings up old feelings in Lou, who wants to see her, despite their relationship having ended with a fight before she left town to be a musician in a traveling ice show. But Lou also doesn't want to make seeing her look like he's trying to see her. So he convinces Mary to throw a party at which both Lou and Charlene will conveniently be there. By party night, things don't start off too well: Ted and Georgette are fighting and end up not speaking to each other, and Murray has what seems to be the flu but attends anyway. What's worse for Lou is that Charlene doesn't arrive alone but with a much younger date, Kenny Stevens, a skater with the show to who Lou is openly hostile. After Lou later apologizes for his bad behavior toward Kenny, Charlene suggests that she and Lou go out together... on a double date. Lou agrees, hoping to make Charlene jealous. The girl who Mary convinces him to ask as his date is her neighbor, ... Written by Huggo

Louis, Louis, Louis
27 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Lou wants to rekindle his relationship with Charlene, but they had a fight and she is mad at him. He talks Mary into throwing a party, so they can meet casually. The problem is that Ted and Georgette are having a fight, Murray has the flu, and Charlene brings a guy half her age to the party. Lou get ugly that things aren't going his way and wrecks any semblance of a party that existed. There are some funny lines, especially when Mary starts calling Lou, Louis (Loo-iss). Penny Marshall makes an appearance as Lou uses her to make Charlene jealous.
