The witty and wickedly wild date comedy. Prudence and Bruce have each posted a singles ad in the paper at the suggestion of their respective therapists. When they meet, their blind date wavers somewhere near total fiasco. While the therapists themselves border on psychotic, and both ex- and current lovers force their way into the picture, Prudence and Bruce try to navigate the treacherous waters of maintaining sanity.
NOTE: contains strong language and gunshots.
