Additional Info

Jerry and Julie Reed are a happy young couple living in a small apartment. At least they would be happy if it were not for Roxanne Conch, who lives with them. Roxanne is a scatter brained pest who spends most of her time in Zen meditation in the closet, which does not allow much privacy. Jerry decides to get Roxanne out of the house for the night by fair means or foul. Fair doesn't work so Jerry fakes a date from a computer dating service with the help of the unusually incompetent Albert of Albert's Talent Agency. This does not work out too well, but Roxanne's maternal instincts are aroused as she forgives Albert and leads him to her meditation closet. This screwy comedy is filled with ingenious comic situations and laugh packed surprises.
