Ready, Set...Laugh!!! This side-splitting comedy will not disappoint! Jon and Leslie (a man) room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the I.R.S. informs the "couple" that they are going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, with whom he is having an affair. All bets are off when Jon’s mother and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend show up!
