Additional Info

Matthew Broderick and Parker Posey starred on Broadway as Howard and Selma, just another urban, Jewish, almost generic white couple from Queens, until the mundane stresses of a leaky shower and a citation for littering overwhelm them and Howard takes to bed. His parents, mother-in-law and boss hysterically elevate his childish rebellion to Civil Disobedience worthy of Thoreau in this skewed comic version of an urban angst from veteran humorist Elaine May.
