Synopsis: Neil Simon's revision of his hugely successful play, The Odd Couple, sees the lead characters transformed into Olive Madison and Florence Unger. Olive and their group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive's messy and ill-equipped apartment. As the game continues, Florence arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. However, Olive and Florence have VERY different personalities. When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers, their differences come to a head and sparks fly.
