Bonzo
Bonzo
A slapstick romantic-comedy.  William Hoffentoft, the head of a family business of questionable
legality, is dead.  His nephew Jim is the heir apparent, but what's a nice guy like Jim going to do
with a moral dilemma like this?  His plastic attractive fiance Barbie doesn't care as long as the
money keeps coming in.  William's business partner Dillon and his Aunt Elizabeth have their own
ideas of who should be running the business.  William's mother Nellie might have some
suggestions if she wasn't deaf and senile.  So that leaves it up to Kate, a friendly psychic, Kate's
friend Lucy, and of course, Jim's friend Bonzo.
