You can park around the back of Chief O'Neill's restaurant. Dress casual. Dining nearby is plentiful. We like Chicken and Salad works for a quick meal. Chief O' Neill's is good for dinner, and Tanos has a good quick pizza.

Desultory storyline; random, inauthentic characters. A few of the workout routines were cute, and Jenny and Jenni were appropriately peppy, but overall, the show needs more cohesion and cogency in order for it to be enjoyable.

Quotes & Highlights

Watch a video promo for Jenny & Jenni at YouTube.
“The Factory Theater reaches a new high in low comedy with this exquisitely terrible riff on the origin of aerobics… (Shannon) O’Neill — who also plays Jenni — packs her script with deft inanities, which Laura McKenzie’s supremely skilled cast spin into comedic gold…everything comes together for a sublimely idiotic finale.” —Chicago Reader

Description

By Shannon O’Neil

Before the Thighmaster. Before Sweatin’ To The Oldies. And before Jane Fonda, there was Jenny and Jenni! Watch this unlikely duo rise to the top of the exercise and fitness food chain before we even knew there was one. Friends since childhood, Jenny and Jenni overcome difficult parents, initial public mockery, and an evil Jordache model to become trailblazers in the fight to keep America fit and feeling good. Follow the adventures of Jenny and Jenni as they invent the exercise studio, awesome fitness apparel, and the workout video. But will success bring this famous pair true happiness after all they’ve been through? Or will it tear them apart? One journey, two Jennys…..just spelled differently.
