If a nice young man named Joe invites you to his pad on the Lower East Side, do yourself a favor and decline his offer. Why? Because Joe shares his seedy-to-the-max apartment with literally thousands of wisecracking cockroaches, who sing gospel hymns, warble country tunes, and even perform aquatic ballets in the toilet! As Joe grows accustomed to his antennaed roommates, he finds that they come in handy as he tries to woo Lily -- whose dastardly father wishes to decimate Joe's building. If Joe wins Lily's heart, it might help dissuade her dad from his plans. Because if the building is destroyed, those roaches will need a new home -- like yours....
