Storyline

Dr. Carter Elson is a man who finds a list of men's names among his wife Alex's possessions. When Carter discovers his own name at the bottom of the list, and that some of the other names are those of dead men, he confides in his friend/agent Betty. Time is ticking as they try and figure out what the list means before his name reaches the top. Alex, a small town girl who marries the up-and-coming doctor as an entry to the social-climbing world she always coveted, is frustrated when obstacles are placed in her path. She meets two other "unhappy wives," played by Sonja Smits and Donna Pescow, and discovers a way out that may be the answer to all of her prayers. The women conspire to 'shorten the list!'

Hilarious movie that keeps you going throughout!
8 March 2005 | by (Kettering, Ohio, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I was flipping around the channels and came across this one. Found out that it had the late great John Ritter (Three's Company) and Nicolette Sherridan (Desperate Housewives) as his wife. Interesting to note that Ritter's secretary in this movie (Amy Yasbeck) was his real life wife! I really liked this movie. It had a lot of elements to a basic movie with the romance of the good Dr. and his wife, the murder element between Sherridan's friends and their husbands. If you want a good laugh, then this one's for you! I think a sequel to the movie would have been good. Maybe show the characters later in life. Obviously with the passing of Ritter, you would have to have a different person to play his role!
