It is the coldest night in November. Owen has shelved his college books and thesis papers to prepare for the date of his life.

It is the coldest night in November. Owen has shelved his college books and thesis papers to prepare for the date of his life. With candlelight, soft music and enough Italian chicken to feed the Northeast coast, he is ready but not for Aurora, the drugstore cosmetics cashier he has finally had the courage to ask for a date. All lipstick and hair spray and spike heels, Aurora is a combination of every cover girl in the history of Cosmopolitan, but her brain is made of paper too. Nothing goes as planned. When Aurora falls for Owen's roommate, things really get out of hand. Throw in Frieda, a psycho obsessive neighbor who has weddings with Barbie dolls and wields a mean butcher knife, and you have a physical comedy of lunatic proportions.

CASTING ATTRIBUTES

OWEN - 20s, average looks; manic; wildly insecure
MITCH - 20s, ultra handsome; easy going; dripping with self-confidence
AURORA - 20s, too much make-up; too few clothes, but genuinely beautiful all the same. Sometimes innocent; sometimes vulgar; all times, profoundly stupid.
FRIEDA - 20s, obsessive, overweight, and one step away from a straight-jacket.
