Synopsis by Josh Ralske

When lifelong enemies Chris (Chris Elliott) and Sharon (Robin Riker) get trapped in a meat locker together, unlikely romance blooms, thanks to the fertilizer of hypothermic delirium. The trouble starts when Chris barges in on Sharon's date with the wealthy Dr. Glen Morris (Drew Pillsbury). Since Sharon's husband Larry has abandoned her, Chris comes over to the Potter home to borrow some of Larry's underpants. Before she can throw him out, Chris scares the new boyfriend off by telling him that Sharon murdered Larry. After beating Chris bloody, Sharon decides she'll spare his life if he'll agree to pose as Glen for her dinner party that night, so she can impress her old sorority sisters. Later, when one of the guests asks "Glen" about his work as a micro neurosurgeon, Chris gets defensive. After declaring himself the "King Hot Pants" of brain doctors, Chris starts talking about his relationship with Sharon. "I have never been more content in my life," he brags to the assembled guests, "and you're talking to a guy who's slept with every high-priced hooker in the state!" When Sharon takes him aside -- into the walk-in meat locker she has in her living room -- to chastise him, she slams the door so hard it gets stuck. Sharon's guests, thinking they've gone into the meat locker to have sex, leave in a huff. It seems that their doom is sealed, and the two embrace in order to share their body heat. Before they die, Sharon tells Chris, "there's something that I want to get off my chest." "You know, I pray you are talking about your bra," Chris responds, "Otherwise, you are the worst kind of tease."
