If you know what to look for, you can find almost anything in the personal ads . . . including the love of your life! Rosanna Arquette is irresistible in her first starring role and pop star Madonna gives a marvelously funny performance in this madcap comedy about mistaken identity. Bored New Jersey housewife Roberta (Arquette) fills her days by reading the personals and following an ongoing romance between “Jim” and “Susan” (Madonna), mysterious drifters who appear to lead the kind of free-spirited lives she can only dream about. And dream she does, until the day she actually shows up at the couple’s prearranged rendezvous in New York City . . . and after a bump on the head, a bout of amnesia turns her into Susan and opens the door to intrigue, laughter, and love.
