"You think you know somebody for 25 years - and then one day, Israeli intelligence agents knock at the door."
- Estelle (Maureen Stapleton) on her husband Carlos (John van Dreelen)
An updating of MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE in which an up-and-coming entertainment lawyer takes the big step with his girlfriend and purchases a fixer-upper for a "steal." As it turns out, the "steal" is really a "rip-off" and everything that can go wrong, does.
A pair of yuppies set out to renovate their dream house only to be plagued by her ex-husband, an unscrupulous construction firm, and the house's crumbling structure.
