Perfect Strangers

Balki Bartokomous, a sheepherder from a Mediterranean island comes to the USA in search of his relatives and finds his cousin Larry Appleton - who is reveling in the luxury of living alone. They end up sharing Larry's apartment. The two cousins could not be more dissimilar. Larry is panicky, hyperventilative, business-like and mercenary - Balki is placid, unharried, sunny-natured and idealistic.
