Mimi Ralston (Audrey Runcorn) is a wealthy and much-married divorcée who is
   giving a party in honor of the reputedly formidable parents of her
   daughter's fiancé (Jess Betts). She engages a stunt "waiter" (Ken Schelper) to insult her guests
   and, specifically, to spill soup on the stuffed-shirt Calthorpes (Bob Pitel & Angie Paul).  But
   her daughter, Edie (Kari Laumb) fearing that her mother would never be able to
   stomach her future in-laws, has hired two bad actors (Brad Williams & Bonnie Jo Bratina) to impersonate
   them--which works fine until the real Calthorpes arrive on the scene
   with their son.

   Thereafter the mistaken identities proliferate, until all is in a state
   of hilarious confusion. Fortunately, things are eventually set straight,
   as is Edie, who learns some lessons in love and life.
