Maxwell's latest play is a flop. He lost a tennis match to just learning tennis player Fran. He has been biting everyone's heads off at the smallest little issues. These issues makes Maxwell reflect on his life, which he thinks has been a total failure. On false pretenses, Fran manages to get Maxwell to see a psychologist to talk about his problems. With the regular psychologist away, Maxwell sees the substitute psychologist, Dr. Joyce Brothers. Her diagnosis of Maxwell: midlife crisis. Her diagnosis is accurate as Maxwell changes his attire from suits and ties to jeans, t-shirts and leather jackets, he buys a Porsche sports car, he dyes the gray streak out of his hair and he wants to quit working. Fran has to figure out how to convince him that his life is a total success. Although she manages to do so, it's not before there's a major failure just before a climax.
