She assumes the worst and turns to her sister-in-law, Cheryl, for comfort while his brother, Greg, comes over to set him straight. The resulting hilarious fallout brings two brothers and two couples closer together…and tattooed! What could easily be a simple dumb sex farce instead becomes an entertaining character-driven ensemble comedy piece. Wilmot’s script is funny above all, but also perceptive, pointed, and, on occasion, even insightful. (951) 658-5300. [website]
