Meet odd couple: Sam and Sammy. They're a loveable New York native couple living together in Los Angeles. They're
barely getting by, yet happy enough, until Sammy's strapping and extremely successful ex-husband, John, whom she still may be in love with, unintentionally imposes as their houseguest to help them out financially. Before Sammy, Sam hasn't had much success romantically. In fear of losing her to John, Sam offers Sammy the lead role in his next movie... the night before one of Hollywood's hottest, most in demand actresses, Kim Powers, expresses interest in playing the role. Now Sam's caught in a pickle.
