Storyline

Jenny Seagrove plays a widow who is defying her friends attempts to find her a new parter. Charles Dance is part of her circle of friends and decides that he is the one for her. He is also in the fortunate position that he is her dentist who just happens to use hypnosis on his patients. Having no luck using conventional methods to win her affections, he resorts to hypnosis which has unforseen and amusing results. Antony Edwards is a failing sports psychologist who gets caught up in the events through a series of chance meetings and the unpredictable results of the hypnosis. Written by Richard Cathcart <richard@fizfrag.demon.co.uk>

Fun!
10 May 1999 | by (Basel, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

There is nothing here which challenged the brain, and it is not an earthshattering 'must-see' flick, but it was very enjoyable, with a very watchable story with actors who are well chosen for their roles (it was great to see Suggs). I must add that the story is also very predictable - but it is the type of film where that doesn't matter.

I just enjoyed it - it was as simple as that.
