A trio of men plot to free themselves of their mates'' unattached and seemingly omnipresent older sister Eva. Eva has a sweet face but a steely disposition: a few choice words from her and a once-confident man becomes a virtual basket case. Eva has been in charge of her younger sisters ever since their parents died, many years ago. The mere fact that they''re married or engaged hasn''t deterred her one bit from continuing to take charge of their lives. But the cost of putting family first has been the deferral of her own dreams--and the assumption of a harder-than-nails personality that no man has been able to crack. Eva''s uncanny ability to interfere with her sisters'' affairs has not endeared her to their spouses and partners. The men would also like to close out and divide the family trust fund that Eva oversees. So they concoct a simple plan: compensate cash-strapped ladies'' man Ray Adams to romance and distract Eva from her financial duties. Sparks fly between Ray and Eva--but the plan goes awry, leading to surprising consequences and complications.
Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are up to their feudin'' ways again. Tired of playing second fiddle to Bugs, Daffy has decided to leave the Studio for good. He is aided by Warner Bros.'' humor impaired Vice President of Comedy, Kate Houghton, who releases him from his contract and instructs WB security guard/aspiring stuntman DJ Drake to capture and "escort" Daffy off the studio lot. (In other words, he''s fired and tossed out on his tail feathers.) Suddenly a sidekick without a hero, the duck decides to ally himself with DJ, whether he likes it or not. Consequently, Daffy is on the scene when DJ discovers that his famous movie star father Damian Drake, known for playing suave international spies onscreen, is actually a suave international spy in real life--and has been kidnapped by the nefarious Mr. Chairman of the equally nefarious Acme Corporation. It seems that Damian knows the whereabouts of the mysterious and powerful Blue Monkey Diamond, and the Chairman will do anything to get his hands on it. With Daffy in tow, DJ hits the road in a desperate attempt to outrace the evil Acme stooges to the diamond and save the world from their evil clutches. Unbeknownst to the two neo-spies, they are also being followed by VP Kate and Bugs--the studio brass has decided that the rabbit needs a comic foil after all, and Kate''s job is on the line if she can''t get Daffy back to work ASAP. Their chase sends the foursome around the globe to meet up with various undercover operatives, from Dusty Tails, a showgirl at Yosemite Sam''s glitzy Las Vegas casino, to Mother, the stern but loving caretaker of the various otherworldly creatures housed at Area 52--a location so extraordinarily top secret that Area 51 was invented just to hide it. Then it''s off to the lights of Paris and the treasures of the Louvre, and finally into the deepest jungles of Africa, where they must beat the dastardly Chairman to the deadly diamond--or it''s "That''s all, folks!" for the world as we know it.

Mob boss Paul Vitti is nearing the end of his term in Sing Sing, and the FBI agents monitoring him are baffled. Day after day they watch as New York''s most notorious gangland figure walks around his cell in a semi-catatonic stupor, occasionally breaking into songs from West Side Story. Is Vitti having a nervous breakdown because of recent threats on his life by a rival family, or is his odd behavior merely a foxy ploy to get him sprung from jail early? The FBI isn''t sure, and neither is his former psychotherapist Ben Sobel, who gets called in to consult on the case. The last time Sobel treated Vitti, he tried to get to the source of his debilitating anxiety attacks, but barely scratched the surface. It will take time to examine the demons still lurking in Vitti''s mind and help put him on the straight and narrow--time that Sobel doesn''t want to give. The truth is, Sobel has problems of his own. His father has just died, plunging him into an identity crisis in both his personal and professional lives. Furthermore, he knows his wife Laura will be furious if he allows the unpredictable Vitti back into their lives. But when Vitti is granted a conditional release into Sobel''s care and custody, becoming his patient again and--even worse--his houseguest, the reluctant psychiatrist finds that he has no choice. In order to get peace back in his life he must help the troubled gangster sort out his psyche, find gainful employment and go straight--which proves easier said than done.
