In this effervescent comedy from the writer of last season’s hit, Sunday in New York, love goes flat when lovers practice to deceive. Howard is a poor medical intern whose girlfriend Amy lives in the apartment right below his. He does love her, but out of imagined jealousy, has planted a listening device in her apartment. When Amy discovers the “bug,” she and her sister invent some spicy conversations and situations that keep Howard on his toes. Can true love triumph over tricks and mistrust?
