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!'

Clever and funny
8 January 2000 | by (san francisco) – See all my reviews

John Ritter turns in a fine performance (once again) as a self-help author/physician who decides to give up big city living to the horror of his formerly trailer-dwelling wife (Nicolette Sheridan).She decides to be, well, proactive in regard to the situation. The movie was clever and well-plotted, keeping in mind that John Ritter elevates each production he is in by at least three notches.
