The Screen Guide

A musical comedy about two mismatched housemates from the acclaimed comedic duo, Sammy J and Randy. Sammy J is a hopeless, down-and-out divorce lawyer who, six years into his legal career, is yet to win a case. And Randy is a cheating, gambling, drinking divorcee who also happens to be a purple puppet. Randy hit rock bottom after his divorce lawyer, Sammy J, managed to lose him everything. So Sammy J offered his spare room to Randy for a fortnight. That was twelve months ago. Now Sammy J and Randy are inseparable - loyal, eccentric, and prone to bursting into song at any given moment.
