A funny, underrated satire about what goes on behind the scenes of a popular soap opera. Sally Field stars as the Susan Lucci-like star, who is going through a real-life sudser of her own, when certain scandalous information is revealed about one of her former co-stars (Kevin Kline) and her niece (Elizabeth Shue). In the midst of the ever growing problem is the vain and extremely jealous soap star, Montana Moorehand (Cathy Moriarty), who is out to destroy Field's career. Not if Field's best friend (Whoopi Goldberg) and the show's top writer has anything to say about it!

A consistently intricate screwball comedy, although ravaged by the critics, is full of devilish plot twists and some pleasant surprises. Field, Kline, Goldberg, Shue and especially Moriarty are at their comic heights. Robert Downey Jr., as the suck-up producer, is the only weak link in an otherwise finely crafted comedy.

My Rating = Three Stars
