Waitress Betty Sizemore (Renée Zellweger) escapes the sadness of her life and bad marriage to car salesman Dale (Aaron Eckhart) by watching the show A Reason to Love. Things are worse than she thinks, as Dale is sleeping around and also selling drugs, which brings hitmen Charlie (Morgan Freeman) and Wesley (Chris Rock) into their lives. Betty watches as they scalp her hubby for the drugs he’s stolen — they are in her car — and the trauma causes her to become a character on the show she loves so much — at least inside her PTSD mind.
Betty goes on a journey to Los Angeles where her knowledge from the show allows her to work in a hospital and meet the love of her character’s life, Dr. David Ravell, who is really actor George McCord, who is really played by Greg Kinnear.
At the same time, Charlie and Wesley are still coming for her and the money that was taken from them. Can Betty’s inherent goodness win out against a brutal world?
Director Neil LaBute also made the remake of The Wicker Man and it’s strange to imagine that that movie came from the same person who made this.
