Product Description:

An overweight woman loses her alcoholic plastic surgeon boyfriend to an aging star and immediately doubles her weight. An enchantress puts a spell on the women that makes them immortal -- no matter how dead they get.

Plot Synopsis:

Two women, one an author of beauty books and the other a vain actress, constantly compete with each other over which is the more attractive. So they both can't resist when presented with a magical elixir that promises eternal youth, life and loveliness. They discover, to their dismay, that the fiendish potion has some unexpectedly devastating -- and darkly funny -- effects.
