The plot revolves around a suicide hotline, a serial killer, two broke lovers, an eviction notice, and a crossdresser who [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wants to be loved]]. The hotline is run by Philip (Martin), Catherine (Wilson), and Mrs. Munchnik (Kahn), and Catherine is in love with Philip. Even though it's Christmas Eve, business is slow–-the only calls they receive are either obscene or from people who are worried about a SerialKiller called the Seaside Strangler–-and the hotline has been evicted from its apartment unless they can pay their rent. Meanwhile, Gracie (Lewis) and Felix ([=LaPaglia=])--who are probably lovers, though it is never confirmed--are expecting a baby but cannot afford to give birth in the hospital, while Chris (Schreiber)--a homosexual who is unafraid to wear a dress and beads in public--is looking for someone who will respect him for who he is.

* BillingDisplacement: Madeline Kahn gets 2nd billing despite playing a supporting role. Rita Wilson is arguably the lead female character, but gets billed under supporting actors Adam Sandler and Juliett Lewis. Jon Stewart is also listed in the opening credits as if he were playing a supporting character, but only appears very briefly and has only a couple lines.



* TheCastShowoff: Adam Sandler wrote the song that he sings to Rita Wilson. Meaning he probably did his own playing on the ukelele as well.
** Also later in the movie, classically trained singer Madeline Kahn hears her fellow cast members singing "Deck the Halls" and decides to join in. Though since she's deliberately off-beat, it's more a combination of this and IronyAsSheIsCast.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Let me see...we get a smarter [[TheJerk Navin Johnson]], [[YouDontMessWithTheZohan Zohan]] before puberty, [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Sabretooth]] in drag, a pregnant [[WhipIt Iron Maven]]...and [[Film/BlazingSaddles Lili von Schtupp.]]
