About Mary Mary

The plot focuses on wisecracking cynic Mary and infuriatingly sensible Bob, who meet at his apartment in the hope they can avert an audit by the Internal Revenue Service. A snowstorm forces Mary to spend the night.

The following morning a friend, neighbour and Bob's considerably younger fiancée Tiffany, arrive. The comedy's humour is derived from discussions about income taxes, marriage, alimony, divorce, remarriage, extramarital affairs, weight-loss programs, exercise, and sex.
