SUMMARY: Jenelle, a writer and celebrity
interviewer for Variety, is surrounded by needy
assistants, including Tom, who uses his possibly terminal cancer
to guilt her into attending his birthday party, and Lorraine,
who mispronounces Jenelle's name but gets upset when Jenelle
mispronounces hers because Lorraine was kidnapped by pirates who
always misprounounced her name. When they go out to a party,
Jenelle's path to the bar is blocked by a total jerk who insults
her unprovoked, but the evening begins to look up when she meets
Curt, who recognizes Jenelle from television and is impressed to
meet an Emmy winner. When a mysterious guy with a briefcase
suspiciously crosses the room, Tom sneaks off and along with an
accomplice, Bergernon, murders the man and steals the case.
Jenelle, for her part, shoots the jerk from the bar dead when he gets in
face again. The next morning, Jenelle and Tom, each unaware of
the others' double life, relax in each others' arms...
