Lucy Chadman (Long) is the ideal suburban housewife, devoted to her medic hubby Jason (Bernsen) and son Danny, who wants to be a chef. Her sister is quite the opposite. In tune with the cosmos, zany Zelda (Ivey) has no problem bringing Lucy back from the dead when she chokes on a South Korean chicken ball. But in the meantime a year has elapsed, and Jason has married Lucy's horizontally-mobile friend Kim (Ward). Lucy doesn't like it. Enlisting the help of a doctor friend (Byrne), she fights off the attentions of the alerted media and sees off her rival in love. Merely the excuse for a parade of expensive clothes and opulent locations, with Shelley Long milking her role for any drop of pathos, this is good for a giggle at best.
