With time fast running out, she begins a frantic search for the only people who can provide the tissue-donations she desperately needs: her long-lost sisters Couderoy and Velour.

In the Naked Gun mold, albeit too silly sometimes.
8 September 1999 | by formula44xxxSee all my reviews

I love Naked Gun-type comedies, but these days they are very hard to come by. Those that are made (Mafia!, Wrongfully Accused, Spy Hard) are usually pretty bad (not to mention unfunny). This one was surprisingly good, has a solid cast of pros (Morgan Fairchild, Ricki Lake, Harvey Korman, Victoria Jackson, Dyan Cannon), and pretty good gags. it does get pretty silly sometimes, but it's still much better than the 3 above-mentioned clones. And to think this was made for TV!
