A relationship-advice guru, upon learning that her fiancé is cheating on her, decides to stay in a small town in Alaska, the most recent stop on her book tour. It's in this remote town, where the ratio of men to women is ten to one, she realizes she can truly learn about the subject she thought she knew so well -- how to find, and keep, a good man.
I loved the "Moonlighting" series 20 years ago, and although I now know that Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd did NOT have the personal chemistry that they had on screen, I still value the series. It was quite ahead of its time--and I think that helps to make the series timeless! This particular episode, "Atomic Shakespeare" is an abbreviated "Taming of the Shrew" with Willis as Petruchio and Shepherd as Katharine.
This casting is, of course, ideal; the minor players (series regulars) also do a great job.
The late Sterling Holloway (recognized by my AP English students as the voice of 'Winnie the Pooh') narrates the love(?) story/comedy like no one else could.
I highly recommend the entire "Moonlighting" series, but particularly this episode from the third season, "Atomic Shakespeare."
