Elizabeth Baskin falls in love, gets married and discovers six years into her union that the magic has faded. What happened to the hot guy she met on L.A.’s 405 Freeway – the one who rescued her after her car broke down and swore to love her for better or worse? Her husband Roger is still a good man, but he’s grown a paunch, lost interest in sex and seems allergic to conversation. What’s a disgruntled wife to do?
Elizabeth’s sister tips her off to a doctor in Beverly Hills who dispenses “enhancements” for disinterested husbands. All Elizabeth has to do is slip the prescribed packet of miracle herbs into Roger’s orange juice and watch him go from zero to hero, restored to the way he was before he started falling asleep in front of the TV every night.
But her plan goes dramatically awry, and instead of rekindling her romance with Roger, she’s stuck with a man she hardly recognizes and doesn’t even like.
Desperate, she breaks into the doctor’s office in search of an antidote, runs from the law and puts her life in danger – all in an attempt to bring Roger back to his old, imperfect self. What she learns is that perfection, especially when it comes to husbands, is highly overrated.
