Storyline

Dr. Carter Elson is a man who finds a list of men's names among his wife Alex's possessions. When Carter discovers his own name at the bottom of the list, and that some of the other names are those of dead men, he confides in his friend/agent Betty. Time is ticking as they try and figure out what the list means before his name reaches the top. Alex, a small town girl who marries the up-and-coming doctor as an entry to the social-climbing world she always coveted, is frustrated when obstacles are placed in her path. She meets two other "unhappy wives," played by Sonja Smits and Donna Pescow, and discovers a way out that may be the answer to all of her prayers. The women conspire to 'shorten the list!'

Last Man On The List stars Nicollette Sheridan as Alexandra, an upscale married Manhattan socialite who decides she is bored with her husband (John Ritter). She does not know what to do about her unhappy marriage until she meets some women who eventually disclose that they are involved in a chain-letter type of list which contains names of husbands to be killed.

This movie is certainly watchable and has a nice score. Nicollette Sheridan looks great (has she ever had a bad hair day?!) and Sonja Smits, Donna Pescow, and Amy Yasbeck all give nice performances. John Ritter is effective here. This is slightly above average made-for-TV fare, and a decent way to pass the time. 7/10
