Directed by Sean Rose

The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy (from the creators of Damn Yankees). Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 and a half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
