Small Kansas town waitress, Betty (Renée Zellweger )is a diehard fan of the soap opera A Reason to Love. After she sees her husband murdered, she goes into shock. She all of a sudden believes that she is a nurse, working at the La hospital of her favorite soap. To add to things she is obsessed with the actor who plays the cardiologist David on the show and thinks she is his fiancée and tries to find the hospital and him in real life- with a trunk full of drugs and the two hitmen who murdered her husband hot on her trail to recover the narcotics.

to complicate things further one of the hitmen Charlie (Morgan Freeman) seems to be growing feelings for Betty. A comedy that you did not expect from a cast that pulls it off beautifully.
