Storyline

With Donald out of town on a business trip, Ann goes to a major league baseball game on her own, where she is hit in the head by a line drive. At the hospital, she, still a little light headed, meets her doctor, who she thinks looks a lot like Donald. She isn't sure if it's just her strong desire for her savior to be Donald or if he really does look like Donald. When her head clears, she does learn that Dr. Rex Kennedy does look exactly like Donald except having darker hair and wearing glasses. Coined "Sexy Rexy" by his colleagues, Dr. Kennedy is different in temperament than Donald - a complete ladies' man. As Dr. Kennedy nurses Ann back to health, he implies that they should have a fling especially if she responds to him as she does to Donald. Offended by the implication, Ann flatly turns him down, telling him that she could tell the difference between the two. So when a blonde haired glassless Donald returns back from his business trip early, Ann has to figure out if it is Donald ... Written by Huggo

One of the worst. Not funny at all. Writing is embarrassing.
15 January 2008 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Synopsis: Ann is hit on the head with a baseball while Donald is out of town. Her doctor looks just like Donald and in her confused state this leads to various situations. Ted Bessell plays both roles with some split screen work.

Larry-view: F. One of the worst. Some early scenes are devoid of any value at all as the writers assume that the situation will carry the comedy, so they don't bother to even try to make the dialog funny or interesting. For example, the first scene in the hospital where Ann mistakes Dr. Kennedy for Donald is a long scene of tedious, tiresome dialog, and it's a complete waste of time. The next scene in the hospital with the psychiatrist also features a long stream of tedious dialog that doesn't push the story along, but does have a little trite psychiatrist humor. Later scenes try harder but fall completely flat, giving the script an embarrassing "trying too hard" quality. The show isn't funny at all. There is one funny joke in the entire script, until the climax, which is funny but only for a few seconds. Much of the script is occupied with the usual compromising situations of men staying over while Ann is in her pajamas, Mr. Marie walking in on men putting Ann to bed, etc. Ted Bessell does not come off well here. He doesn't pull a fantastic Shatner on us and play two characters. Rather, he pulls a lame Clark Kent and plays Donald Hollinger the whole time, simply putting on a pair of glasses for the other character.
