    A Comedy about a Soap Opera Writer Who`s Typing without a Ribbon
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 92 mins
    Retail Price: £12.99
    Release Date:

    Writer Jack Gable`s (John Candy) soap opera has it all: deceit, trickery, sex, sex and more sex... and that`s just behind the scenes. Candy is hilarious in this laugh a minute daytime serial spoof which co-stars Mariel Hemingway, Emma Samms, Raymond Burr, and David Rasche. When Jack clumsily bumps his head, he wakes up in the small town of Ashford Falls, the setting of his popular soap opera.
    But what begins as a nightmarish scenario turns into the opportunity of a lifetime as Jack finds he can control the events around him... by writing them! With typewriter at hand, Jack attempts to win the love of the shows beautiful bad girl (Samms) but while scripting his destiny with her, he keeps running into, literally, an accident prone good girl (Hemingway). Will he be able to win the woman of his dreams? Will he win the coveted Daytime Emmy? Only one thing`s for certain: his attempts to write his own ticket will leave you laughing deliriously...
