how simple the plot is: a couple gets into a massive argument which then leads to both their parents intervening to solve the issue.
But how many of these arguments can one sit through before switching off? The issue isn’t really with the loud, boisterous nature of the performances or the points the characters keep shouting at each other.
So when nothing much is at stake for this couple, the only real investment we’re making is to see how this interaction would end up transforming the parents.
