Storyline

Judith Singer is a housewife, out of the journalism business for many years. When a dentist she has been seeing (who has a strong bedside manner even while female patients are still in the chair) is found murdered, she finds that a neighbor is a suspect. She begins to investigate. This places her in danger from the murderer, from the women who have had affairs with the dentist, and from the police who begin to wonder why she is always at the scenes where clues are discovered. Her husband becomes angry at what is happening, placing strains on her family as she finds herself more and more attracted to the police detective investigating the murder.

Trivia

Susan Sarandon was pregnant during production and it was agreed upon by all parties that the best way to work around it was to incorporate loose-fitting clothes into her character's wardrobe which worked out fine since she was playing a former investigative journalist turned suburban stay-at-home mom.

The secret life of vegetables. Vegetarians beware!
30 June 2000 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

A good script (with adult themes) and an excellent cast make this a most enjoyable caper-comedy about the secret life of an upscale dentist. What this one does with vegetables gives one pause about eating salads anywhere but home, as Judith Ivy (particularly good as an oversexed suburban housewife) dryly points out in one of the funniest lines in the film. The movie is fast-paced with very good direction and production values. Maybe not quite a "10," but close to it.
