Storyline

Norm volunteers to be his company's party director in order to advance the corporate ladder. After doing so, he realizes he knows nothing about party planning. On Diane's flippant suggestion, Norm decides to throw a toga party at the bar. Things start off badly on party night when Norm is the only one who dresses in costume. Things go downhill from there. The final blow for Norm is the fact that the woman he hired to be the boss' date at the last minute can't make it, so he pleads with Diane to keep his boss, Sawyer, company. Reluctant to prostitute herself, Diane initially refuses but changes her mind when she sees that Sawyer is a young, well-dressed, handsome man. An incident later at the party places Norm in a precarious position but elicits an unexpected response from his otherwise dour colleagues. Written by Huggo

Norm the Just
5 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Norm decides to kiss up to the boss by planning the annual accountants' party. Diane suggest he do a toga party but no one dares to wear one, except Norm. The accountant's are so boring that there is no action or even conversation. But, unfortunately, one of Norm's requirements is to hook the boss up with a woman.
