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>

Not a knee slapper but fun to watch
28 June 2003 | by DPerson626See all my reviews

If you like Kirstie Ally you will enjoy this movie. You wont go away any smarter than you were before, but that isn't what I watch movies for. It is about a repressed wife (Kirstie) of a doctor who is more married to his family than to her. Her irrepressible sister (Jamie Gurtz) convinces her that she should have an affair to spice up her life. When she follows that advice it sets off a chain of events that, if you have any sense of humor at all, will bring on the chuckles. I would recommend this picture to anyone wanting to fill in an hour and a half with some light and uncomplicated entertainment. 6/10 would be about right for the genre.
