Sam has a problem with his roommates: they are disgusting, and don't seem to share his views on responsibility, privacy, and basic hygiene. Such is his discomfort with his living arrangements that he agrees to share the occupancy of another flat: he gets two nights a week, the owner (a sleazy frat-boy yuppie named Brian, soon to be married) and Ellen (a would-be painter seeking relief from her boring marriage) each get their separate nights in the flat. Things go extremely well until Sam and Brian swap nights without telling Ellen, who attributes the "nice" things that happen around the place to the slob Brian, while berating the responsible Sam for his hedonistic lifestyle.

Matthew Broderick and Dominick Chianese both worked with Oscar Winning Director Sidney Lumet. Broderick had done with Family Business in 1989 and Chianese would play a vital role in, Night Falls On Manhattan, which began filming a few years after this film was completed. See more »
Not many people saw this movie, but I bet David Chase did!
Mildly entertaining comedy about a threesome timesharing a New York City apartment, but never meet. Broderick is the standout as a fed-up cheese clerk at an upscale grocery store.
While the film itself is barely worth a watch on cable, I thought it was interesting that the movie had no less than three (3!) future Sopranos cast members in roles varying from starring (Anabella Sciorra) to supporting (Dominic Chianese) to walk on (Michael Imperioli). David Chase definitely saw potential in all of these actors, so it's sad to see that the movie really wasted Sciorra's talents...
