This farcical comedy focuses on Prudence and Bruce, two people who are
seeking stable romantic relationships with the help of their
psychiatrists, each of whom suggests their patient place a personal ad
in the newspaper. Bruce is a highly emotional bisexual who tends to
cry easily, a trait Prudence sees as a weakness. Their first meeting
proves to be disastrous and the two report back to their respective
therapists—libidinous Stuart, who once seduced Prudence, and
eccentric Charlotte, who stumbles over the simplest of words, who
references the play Equus as a good source of advice, and who
interacts with her patients with the help of a stuffed Snoopy doll.
Clearly the two therapists are more troubled than their patients.
Charlotte suggests a revised ad, which once again attracts Prudence,
but this time Prudence and Bruce manage to get past their initial
loathing and discover they actually like each other. Complications
ensue when Bruce's jealous live-in lover Bob decides to assert himself
and do everything possible to maintain his status quo.
