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>

Very Strange Story Indeed!
9 June 2003 | by (Greenacres, Florida) – See all my reviews

I agree with the user above who wrote the summary of this movie. The only reason I watched this was because I found both Crystal Bernard and Traci Lords very attractive. After Traci Lords died in the movie, the only reason I kept watching it was because Crystal Bernard had to dress up in all of Traci Lords mini dresses and she looked very sexy.

Other than that, this movie takes too many twists and turns to be believable. Judge Reinhold plays what appears to be a silly character that turns out to be sinister. All I can say is that if you've got a few hours to kill, you might get a laugh out of this farce.
