Description

This amateur spoof-drama tells the story of a couple that order a mans suit from a mail order catalogue, but he procrastinates, daydreaming about being a female underwear catalogue model, instead of choosing a suit. His wife forces him to make a decision as time is short. Once ordered, all they get is the free gifts due to repeated clerical and computer errors from the mail order company. This film has an animated opening title and credits with opening instrumental music.
