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>

Just plain fun!
30 March 1999 | by EmptyLeoSee all my reviews

I watched this because I really like Kirstie Alley, not thinking it'd be too good. But the laughs kept coming. Just when you think things couldn't get more awkward another silly scenario comes along. Like the TV show Three's Company, but actually funny. Not a bad hour and a half, I give it 7 out of 10.
