Ally has a lot going for her – an enormous Manhattan apartment that is rent stabilized, a burgeoning career in fashion design, and a doting fiance. But when she kicks him out for cheating and seeks a roommate to help offset the costs, she finds herself in a nightmare scenario with Heddy, a shy and dowdy stranger who wins her over with her plumbing skills. Soon enough Heddy’s bad roommate behavior escalates from closet infiltration to a full-on Ally replicating makeover to much, much worse. Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh are so iconic in this, you may find yourself bringing a screen grab of their ginger bob to your hair stylist.
