Storyline

Ann's latest job is a commercial to air on comedian Marty Nickels' television show, he who picked Ann personally from among those who auditioned. So later when Ann sees a drunken Marty at a bar - the bartender who threatens to throw Marty out or have arrested for drunken and disorderly behavior - Ann, out of gratitude, helps Marty make his way home so that he can sober up in peace. However, he won't tell her where he lives, so she takes him back to her apartment instead. With Donald's help, Ann is able to get Marty ready to sleep off his drunken state on her sofa for the night, while she spends the night at Jerry and Ruthie's. When Marty wakes up the next morning with a hangover, a series of misunderstandings leads to Marty believing that he had an improper evening alone with Ann, both morally and legally (if Ann is underage), and that Ann is in love with him. He decides to drown his troubles with booze, which starts the cycle all over again. Only someone who enters Ann's life ... Written by Huggo

Just above average. Gets an extra point for Sid Ceasar's comedy bits.
23 January 2008 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Synopsis: Ann wins a part in a show because the washed up star is smitten with her legs. When the drunken star gets himself in trouble, Ann brings him home. Stars Sid Ceaser.

Larry-view: Gets an extra point because Sid Ceasar gives us a few comedy bits on the telephone. Some other portions of the script are also funny. Sid spends most of the script displaying how his washed up character is no longer funny. Unfortunately, that's not funny. The script, yet again, focuses on innuendo and compromising situations. For the most part Sid's not funny, but he succeeds when talking on the telephone with his lawyer friend. Some of the bits are really good, better than Bob Newhart's famous telephone style, which I've never liked. Each morning that Sid wakes up in Ann's apartment, he assumes she's smitten with him and goes through a "coyote ugly" routine. "Coyote ugly" is where you wake up next to a girl sleeping on your arm, and she's so ugly that you chew off your arm so that you can get away without waking her up. Overall a slightly above average script with some bonus comedy bits
