Wildly popular TV talk show host Bobby Bishop has a nervous breakdown during an on-camera interview with a pop starlet, with whom he makes a rather crude observation and offer. This lapse of taste sets off a series of scandals in his off-camera life, which his beleaguered agent is helpless to stop. Desperate for love, Bobby rushes to New York City to find his former girlfriend, Lily, who doesn't even like his show, and neither does her cross-dressing boyfriend. Can true love straighten out the messes that are these folks' lives? Written by
Rosie O'Donnell's gonna crucify him! What an idiot!

All I know is, Rosie O'Donnell's gonna crucify me.

The person everyone is hoping will Get Well Soon is TV talk show host Bobby Bishop as played by Vincent Gallo. The guy who most wants him to get well is Gallo's agent Jeffrey Tambor. His career rides on Gallo's career.
But they both look like they're circling the bowl as Gallo makes some rather crude remarks to a female guest. Immediately he's checked into a mental hospital with the explanation he's suffering a nervous breakdown.
Get Well Soon is a combination of One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Network and a few other films thrown in for good measure. It doesn't really succeed at being a good imitation of either of those classics. It gets really dull in spots, it has no real life to it.
It's just a bad imitation of some good classics.
