Synopsis

Johnny Twennies, a young fast-talking reporter who writes a column for New York's lowly Sun-Telegram, has convinced himself that he's living in the 1920s. Unfortunately, his old-fashioned ethics prevent him from fulfilling the physical needs of his increasingly frustrated girlfriend Samantha, a SoHo art dealer. When circulation numbers hit rock bottom, Johnny finds his job in jeopardy. When his kindly but overburdened editor levels an ultimatum, it looks like curtains for our modern day penny-a-liner. Johnny must turn in the story of the century or clean out his desk. When a pair of low-life thugs drop a lead in his lap, Johnny smells a scoop.
