Storyline

Susan Warfield is new to Los Angeles. Fortunately for her, she's just made a new friend, Nicole. Unfortunately Nicole doesn't have private medical insurance. You see, Nicole has a stomach ulcer which is causing her severe pain. When Susan rushes her to hospital, the doctors will not operate on her because of her insurance status. Susan has a brilliant idea - Nicole can borrow her medical card, pretend to be Susan, and have her operation immediately, whilst Susan goes on holiday's, pretending to be Nicole.. All is well, there's no way Susan could be caught cheating the system. Shockingly Nicole (whose pretending to be Susan) mysteriously dies after her operation. This means that Susan Warfield is, according to the government, dead. Written by Michael Feller <reb@magna.com.au>

User Reviews

A good rendition of a typical 90s made-for-TV mystery/thriller starring some good actors.
27 April 2000 | by (Durham, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Crystal Bernard is mixed up in a self-induced identity crisis with Traci Lords and Judge Reinhold. She pulls off the part quite well with her Texas charm and manages to make this an entertaining cheesy made for TV movie. Judge Reinhold plays a decent psychopath, especially with his creepy "We were made for each other" voice. As Good as Dead is comparable to Heartless with Madchen Amick, and is about as equally entertaining. This movie rates high for predictability, and its plot outline has been done repeatedly. The movie is worth seeing just for Judge Reihnold's inimitable comical presence and to see what he's been up to.
