SYNOPSIS

A holiday comedy with dark overtones, Fruitcakes presents a supposedly humorous look at the behind-the-scenes events at a crisis hotline on Christmas Eve. Philip runs Lifesavers, a Venice, California organization dedicated to helping the depressed and troubled. Unfortunately, Philip is a bit down himself, having learned that Lifesavers is on the verge of eviction. His staff isn't feeling particularly helpful either, with Mrs. Munchnik giving gruff, often insulting advice, and Catherine obsessing over her own unspoken love for Philip. As the holiday approaches, various weirdoes of all shapes and sizes, from to a pregnant clothing store owner to a disenchanted Santa Claus,  begin dropping in, throwing the already strained office into utter chaos. Based on the 1979 French play Le Père Noël est une Ordure, and the 1994 film Mixed Nuts.
