Ray Mann, who also directed this popular comedy in 1992, returns with a cast of feisty ladies and a couple of suave guys.

When neurotic and suicidal Florence becomes separated from her husband and moves in with Olive, friendships become seriously strained.
Florence finds comfort in using her talents as a domestic goddess, to bring order into Olive’s life. So, the obsession which lost Florence her husband now impinges on Olive, who retaliates by arranging a double date with two Spanish brothers in the next apartment. This leads to even more confusion and complications.
