Storyline

Marjorie Turner is suffocating. Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her 8 year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), whom he is also competing for the affections of. One day, she snaps while food shopping, and beds a mysterious man, who die during the moment of passion. When she forgets her wallet, a vertical-blinds salesman finds it, and things get complicated from there... Written by Allison L. Venezio <YankeeSNL01@aol.com>

It's a chick flick!
8 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are times when I just need mental popcorn, so If you are looking for a silly movie, this is it. I love this movie - it's got some great lines and Sam Elliott. This amazing cast is a trivia lover's dream: Rebecca from Cheers, Princess Leia, Beckett from Quantum Leap, Al Bundy, Muffy from Square Pegs, the husband from Maude and more. Bill Pullman is a great supporting actor.

I want Sam Elliott's voice to make love to me. To this day, there are times I remember that line "It wasn't sex, it was GOOD!"

I give it 8 out of 10 stars for it's genre: chick flick romantic comedy.
