Storyline

Christian convinces Sean to spend the practice sale profits generously, for themselves, Julia and Matt. Alas Troy gets blackmailed by James, and Kimber lures Matt away to Scientology, so he hires an expensive private specialist. Troy's looks enable him to pump fat, ugly new lottery millionaire Dwight Budge, common as muck, for fortunes of surgery, decoration, advice and even sex, only to learn love isn't for sale. Sean's own remarriage-plan knows its ups and downs while Mat resists kidnapping-back. Written by KGF Vissers

Escapist, outrageous, politically incorrect and excellent
7 February 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"Nip / Tuck" never fails to amaze me. While requiring a massive suspension of belief, I love the escapist charms of its twisted plots and talented cast.

"Dawn Budge" is strong on comedy, containing a sterling performance from Rosie O'Donnell as white trash turned multi-million-heiress thanks to Lady Luck.

Julian McMahon's Christian Troy may be a tortured soul but he has a flair for making money, even if it requires him to have the morals of a tom-cat.

Unmissable.
