Storyline

Marjorie Turner is suffocating. Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her eight year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), of whom he is also competing for the affections. One day, she snaps while food shopping, and beds a mysterious man, who dies during the moment of passion. When she forgets her wallet, a vertical-blinds salesman finds it, and things get complicated from there. Written by Allison L. Venezio <YankeeSNL01@aol.com>

poorly delivers what the back seems to offer
4 February 2003 | by quietblackbeltSee all my reviews

This movie is the worst thing one could waste their time on. I have to disagree with the people who call this film 'good entertainment' and 'funny' for my friend and I do not feel quite the same way. We too 'ran into the movie by coincidence' but we were walking around or local video store looking for a random movie rather than shopping the bargain bins at the local K-Mart. We took the movie home and watched it, but did not happen to find 'a great little funny movie.' In fact, if the video hadn't been property of the video store, my friend and I would have taken the tape out back and burned it in effigy right at the credits started to roll. This movie was that bad.
