Described as a “Side-splitting comic romp about marriage”, career-driven Suzannah Hayden needs alot more help on the home front than she’s getting from her husband Gibby. Lately, nurturing his
marriage of twenty-seven years hasn’t been the highest priority for Gibby, but pretty soon he’ll wish it had been. Enter Beth Baily, Suzannah’s newly-hired assistant, a gregarious, highly-motivated
daughter of the south. Beth explodes into the Hayden household and whips it into an organised, well-run machine. This couldn’t have happened at a better time for Suzannah, as her boss, Celia
Carmichael, the CEO of Carmichael’s Chocolates, is flying in soon for an important make-or-break business dinner. Gibby grows increasingly wary as Beth insinuates herself into more and more aspects of their lives. In no time, she exceeds her duties as a household assistant and interjects herself into Suzannah’s career. As Suzannah’s dependence on Beth grows and Gibby’s dislike of the woman deepens, Suzannah gives Beth carte blanche to change anything in the household that “will make it run more efficiently”. The change Beth makes is to convince Suzannah that Gibby must go!! When he realises it’s Suzannah’s career Beth is really after, a newly-determined Gibby sets out to save his marriage, aided by Suzannah’s best friend, Margo, a wisecracking and self-deprecating
divorcee and her ex-husband Hank, who is in the midst of his own mid-life crisis. Their effort to stop Beth at any cost, sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry, just as Suzannah’s boss arrives for that all-important dinner.
