College sophomore Randy Bodek is unfocused. The only thing he knows is that he loves his roommate, Jenny Gordon, who feels unappreciated as other things in his life seem to take precedence over her. He hasn't even told his parents, Diane and Joe Bodek, that he is living with a female, let alone a significant other. As such, Jenny breaks up with him at the end of the semester. While Randy is home during the summer break, Joe, against Diane's wishes, decides not to fund Randy's college education anymore as he is flunking all his classes, and hasn't yet declared a major. Not knowing what to do besides try to get back to college if only to be with Jenny, Randy gets a minimum wage job as a delivery guy at a pizza joint. During the course of his job, he meets Alex Barnett, a beautiful, older, sophisticated woman who likes pizzas with extra anchovies. To his surprise, she seduces him, after their sexual encounter which she gives him $200 to help him get back to college. Without telling him, ... Written by Huggo

Misunderstandings Galore: A star-filled episode of Three's Company
28 January 2002 | by CLundmarkSee all my reviews

What a surprise! (The cast, not the quality of this movie.) It was worth watching if only to see Vic Tabac, Kirstie Alley, Kate Jackson, Carrie Fisher, and yes, I think that was Lisa Kudrow. It's more than a coincidence many of the stars are famous for slapstick sitcom humor. All it needed was Susanne Sommers to nearly duplicate a PG-13 episode of Threes Company, with misunderstandings piling up like a string of accidents during rush hour on the Long Island Expressway. In short, a movie deserving a score of 4 brought up to a 6 by the star-filled cast.
