Dave Hirsch, a writer and an army veteran winds up in his small Indiana hometown, to the dismay of his respectable older brother. He meets and befriends various different characters and tries to figure out what to do with his life.
Political drama about a honest but naive gubernatorial candidate who is manipulated by his corrupt campaign manager and is forced to temporarily cede power to his wife, a woman of integrity despite her shameful past.
Actor Jason Steel plays a caring, godlike doctor on television. Off the set, he's the insecure fiancé of pretty art teacher Melissa. Jason doesn't know what to expect of marriage, especially after seeing how the fires have burned out in all of his poker buddies' marriages. Complicating matters: his friends' wives have confused Jason with his television persona and they keep popping up at his house eager to check out his bedside manner.Written by

funny, intelligent "black comedy" has Dino as a totally frustrated soap opera star > he plays a Doctor who , like Ben Casey at the time, had millions of fans trying to contact, should I say "connect", with him, because his portrayal of the learned, caring specialist is so convincing. his big problem is that the wives of his buddies also clamor for him, at the most inopportune times.
all the actors do just fine, esp., as I wrote above, Carol Burnett. she burns thru each scene and lifts the fairly hum drum plot line.
movie runs a tad long and gets a bit frantic at the end, but this is total entertainment.
interesting to note that just after this "sleeper" (sorry) all the leads got a TV show of their OWN!
