: Nurse Betty
Strange comedy: considerably more violent than I expected, and slow to get started. Betty’s a Kansas housewife who’s a fan of a TV soap opera doctor. When she witnesses her jerk husband being killed by hit men, she flips out and thinks the soap is real and she’s in love with the doctor. So she travels to Hollywood with the hit men on her trail. What follows is hilarity as the actor thinks she’s just playing a role to get on the soap, but she thinks everything’s real! Pretty funny (and touching) once it gets going. The first half hour or so isn’t much of a comedy.
