A clairvoyant thinks she's met her husband to be because she's seen him in her dreams. They marry quickly, and return to the husband's ("the butcher"), home in the city. She has a big impact on everyone she meets by anticipating their questions and actions and advising them on their love life. Her interference then brings her into contact with the real man of her dreams.Written by
The picture was a critical and commercial failure at the box office. See more »
At the beginning of the movie when Demi Moore's character is in the butchers shop, the scene has her walking behind the meat case and the distinct sound of her wearing shoes is heard in each step she takes despite her character not owning any shoes and is supposed to be barefoot. . See more »
Dr. Alex Tremor:
[talking to self in mirror, shaving]
You ended up skating in the park witha patient. It's class countertransferance. You allowed her to manipulate you into a vulnerable - nevermind unprofessional - situation where she controlled you. This is freshman psychology, Alex.
Dr. Alex Tremor:
Oh, oh, good! Oh, good! Good! Dr. Tremor, don't blow a graet career on a cute piece of ass. You keep your dick in your pants, your id in check, and you remember we have a mission in this world.

Demi Moore (with a blonde do) plays Marina, a clairvoyant who marries a New York butcher believing him to be the man of her dreams. Once she gets to New York she finds out that while her powers seem to be accurate when she advises other people, she may not have made the right choices for herself...
I was forced to watch this movie by my girlfriend and found myself pleasantly surprised. It's no classic, but is a sweet, enjoyable film (though it's fairly easy to spot how things will work out early on).
Over here in the UK the film received a "15" certificate, presumably for the one instance of strong language that actually jars with the rest of the film, and possibly for the lesbian character/s (though they barely touch each other on screen).
I sympathised with most of the characters, especially Mary Steenburgen's would-be singer (she has a surprisingly good voice, by the way). Marina's complete accuracy when it comes to predictions that don't involve her is a little far-fetched, especially when she gets her own life in such a mess.
Worth a look if you like low-key romantic comedies with a slightly magical twist (not a large genre!), or if you liked "Simply Irresistible" (1999) with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Not really one for most guys, though.
