Storyline

Perfume creator Satin Chow is about to reveal her new designer scent 'Puppy' when she is cruelly struck down by a rare condition called anosmia which robs her of her sense of smell, and could even kill her. With time fast running out, she begins a frantic search for the only people who can provide the tissue-donations she desperately needs: her long-lost sisters Couderoy and Velour.

BETTER AND FUNNIER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
14 September 2004 | by InvasionofPALsSee all my reviews

I just watched this movie for the second time and it's still just as funny as it was the first time. It's too bad this TV movie isn't better remembered. The actors all seem to be having a good time, spoofing just about every TV movie cliché the scriptwriter could think of and insert into a 90 minute movie. Morgan Fairchild handles the leading role quite well. I've read some less-than-complimentary reviews on her performances in other movies and telefilms, but she's good in this one. Morgan F. proves to have some comic timing and I found this to be an entertaining way to spend 90 minutes (twice). You can read other comments to find out the plot to this, but the bottom line is: This is a funny movie with many more gags that work than most films, TV or theatrical, of this type. Heck, I may even watch this a third time.
