A comic follow-up to 1984's Masculine Mystique, this is a tale of two men without women, at least for awhile. Blue (Stefan Wodoslawsky) is a shy loner who really wants a bride, and so he turns to a Korean mail-order catalog for just that purpose. Alex (Sam Grana) is a rejected spouse whose innate arrogance gets pulled up short when the only woman interested in him cares more about his sperm count than his charming personality (the woman is a lawyer looking for a sperm donor for one of her clients). When the Korean bride shows up, she is really everything that Blue could want in a woman and more -- but since she can tell he is vacillating during her 90-day trial period (no extended warranty, that is the length of her visa) she says whatever is appropriate in Korean and essentially dumps him. It remains to be seen what lies in store for Blue, his bride-to-be, and Alex. And wherein lies men's lib in all of this?
