Storyline

Henry and Kip are two advertising designers who had a real problem with finding a place to live. At the beginning, the sole place they could afford was condemned, but they only found out when the wrecking ball was smashing up the place while they were sleeping. A female friend suggested they stay at her building, but the snag is that the place is for women only. In desperation, they assume the identities of the women Hildegard and Buffy in order to rent a room. Now as they pursue their dream of success in the ad business, they also struggle to keep their deception at the apartment building so they won't be evicted, but the beautiful neighbours they have are a constant temptation.

Trivia

The pilot episode was shot on film, the rest of the series was shot on videotape. See more »

Goofs

In a second season episode, an opening shot of Kip & Henry's building shows a California state flag flying outside. Since they work in New York City, this would be incorrect. It is an obvious stock shot of a downtown Los Angeles office building meant to imply Manhattan. See more »

Quotes

Kip 'Buffy' Wilson: She certainly gives credence to those rumors Eva Braun made it out.

Excellent 80's comedy
19 July 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

This is where Tom Hanks' climb got started.

Two men dress in drag so they can stay at an all women's hotel. Why? Their hotel was demolished, while they were in it.

The drag angle gave this a boatload of sight gags to work with. Like when they were wearing wigs, bras, and shaving cream and singing 'Macho Man.' Hanks and Scolari made a GREAT duo. These two worked off each other perfectly.

The late Wendi Jo Sperber and Thelma Hopkins provided great comedy on their own too. Sperber was better than she ever got credit for.

Holland Taylor made a great foil for the humor. However, you almost wanted to like her.

Donna Dixon was the looks. She was beautiful, and still is. I only wish her acting was better. But then, she still did well.

This is one of those shows you wish lasted longer.
