        Shark in the Bathtub

Shark in the Bathtub

Hidden truths are revealed in thisSeinfeld-esque romantic comedy centered on a couple's conversation. the couple, an artist and a psychiatrist, begin trading barbs and observations laced with sarcasm, but the argument soon develops into a sweet profession of their love for one another. This wonderfully absurd conversation that comes full-circle is without depth or significance (but is interesting nonetheless) -- much like a shark in the bathtub.
