The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag
No one ever paid any attention to shy librarian Betty Lou Perkins, until someone found The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag! And when Betty Lou confesses to a crime she didn't commit, her world turns upside down. The bogus confession launches a series of uproariously funny events as a new, sexy Betty Lou captures headlines, rocks out in nightclubs, outwits the mob and wins cheers from the townspeople. Starring Penelope Ann Miller and Cathy Moriarty.
Matthew Modine stars as Joe Slovak, a brilliant first-year med student whose casual, nonconforming approach to life gets tested when he enrolls in gross anatomy, the toughest course in med school. Joe's freewheeling, independent style creates funny moments in the classroom, but puts him at odds with his demanding professor (Christina Lahti), who questions whether her class "rebel" has what it takes to be a doctor. On top of that, Joe falls in love with his no-nonsense lab partner (Daphne Zuniga), who won't let anything, especially romance, interfere with her plans. And while Joe's never done anything by the book, he proves he does have what it takes to succeed -- without changing his ways.
