THE TERMINATOR'S WIFE is not science fiction, but rather a "screwball" comedy, set against the urban sprawl of contemporary Los Angeles. Warren Stelling is a young graduate student at UCLA who finds himself at odds with the status quo. The stuffy professors of the English Department are hopelessly tied to tradition, ritual, and special interests. The epitome of these professors is Sebastian Bateman, who is called the "Terminator" by his students because of the sadistic pleasure he seems to take from failing and humiliating them. Warren accidently runs into Bateman's young and beautiful wife Evie at a record store, and they fall in love at first sight. First and foremost, THE TERMINATOR'S WIFE is a love story about two people who find each other amidst trying and often hilarious circumstances. It is a fast-paced, funny, and contemporary look at the eternal war of the sexes.
