Ugly Betty meets The Terminator in this new sci-fi musical by D'Arcy Drollinger (Shit & Champagne, Project: Lohan). When lonely, put-upon secretary Eileen spots an ad for a fully functioning mechanical male companion, she takes her future by the reigns and places an order. Mr. Irresistible soon arrives on her doorstep and, true to fantasy, a romance blossoms. Just one problem: He's not her mail-order groom. He's an exterminator on a service call. Soon the official Acme Brand Mr. Irresistible comes knocking, and the humble exterminator can't compete with the custom-made dream man. But just as Eileen is settling into a state of bliss with her new perfect beau, a coworker she's been complaining about turns up dead, and Eileen becomes suspicious of her robotic Romeo. She contemplates sending him back -- where he'll be disassembled for parts -- but Mr. Irresistible catches on and begins a fight for his life. Will Eileen finally find her voice and learn where true love has been all along? Learn More
