Frankie and Johnny Are Married is a 2003 comedy about the disastrous production of the classic play, "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune." Director Michael Pressman (Michael Pressman) has decided to produce and direct the play as a way to spark the sagging acting career of his unhappy wife, Lisa Chess (Lisa Chess). He also hopes that doing so will revitalize their hum-drum marriage. Unfortunately, the experience quickly goes south since the actor that Pressman has cast as Frankie (Alan Rosenberg) turns out to be impossible to direct. Even worse, Frankie has difficulty differentiating between acting and real-life, particularly during the play's heated love scenes. As Pressman watches his play lose money while getting savaged by the critics, he realizes that he has only one hope of saving both the play and his marriage: he is going to have to fire Frankie and take on the role himself. But will his last-ditch effort work?
