In the midst of a mid-life crisis and with no expe- rience as a “hot lover”, he arrang- es three separate dates with three different women in his mother’s apartment. A depressed house- wife, a foul-mouthed vixen, and a young actress line themselves up to meet the overworked Barney. The results are both surprising and hilarious.
