    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Okay, so here's the idea here, if you can believe it: Three female employees and two female temps are at the office tower where they work at Acme Lingerie (and we get to see a bit about their boss' preferred hiring practices, ahem) doing inventory until late into the night.
