Storyline

Dr Eva Warden (Beth Broderick) has a patient, Tracey, whose dying wish is to become a mother. Eva performs a surgery on Tracey, only to find out that she has cancer and to save her life she'll have to do a hysterectomy. When Tracey wakes up and realizes that her chance of becoming a mother is forever gone, she's utterly distraught, and although her husband suggests an adoption, it's not a possibility for Tracey. When her sorrows's over, anger get's the upper hand and Dr Warden unawarely becomes the target of Tracey's wrath. With Dr Warden in the danger zone, one more life is also automatically put in mortal danger... Written by Angelica

campy fun
16 February 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Executive produced by Delta Burke, she is a pregnant woman who loses her baby when it is discovered she has cancer of the left ovary, and her doctor Eva Warden (Beth Broderick) performs a hysterectomy rather than remove the ovary. Burke then seeks vengence on Dr Warden - her home, her practice, her husband, her baby, and her life. Burke throws herself into all this with abandon, playing along with the campy direction by George Kaczender. Styled in her own Design wardrobe, she looks beautiful, a bit like Roseanne, particularly when wearing a red seductress dress with plunging neckline. Burke is very funny whether having a tantrum in a toilet stall or throwing pencils over her shoulder after she stubs out the point. The teleplay by Lisa Friedman Bloch and Kathy Kirtland Silverman makes Burke infantile in her anger, with a large doll collection, the kind of person who yells when they attack. That she has such good fortune in carrying out her plans makes the denouement disappointing,and the end definitely suggests a sequel was contemplated.
