Kirstie Alley knocks' em dead - literally - and then becomes hysterically hysterical in this laugh-out-loud funny comedy which co-stars Bill Pullman, Carrie Fisher, Jami Gertz, Scott Bakula, Sam Elliott and Ed O'Neill! All Marjorie (Alley) ever wanted was to become a writer: "like Sylvia Plath...only happy." But she put her dream aside to marry a doctor (Bakula)...before discovering that he has no bedside manner! Unhappy, unfulfilled and decidedly unsatisfied, she attempts to find bliss in a hotel room with a handsome stranger. But when the man she checks in with checks out for good - leaving behind only a smiling corpse and a shocking identity - Marjorie will have to cover up the body and the affair... or she may as well write off the rest of her life!
