Dr. Sullivan Travis (Richard Gere) is a man at the top of his game, a rich and successful Dallas gynecologist whose “religion” is women. They surround him in all aspects of his life and he is loving and giving to each and every one at all times. And as in the story of Job, one day a higher force decides to test his faith. Dr. T suddenly finds himself surrounded by chaos and confusion. His home life starts to boil over when his over zealous wife (Farrah Fawcett) who is painstakingly planning their daughter’s wedding has a nervous breakdown. Adding to the madness, his champagne-loving sister-in-law (Laura Dern) has moved in with her three obnoxious young daughters and his own daughters (Kate Hudson and Tara Reid) are arguing mercilessly. Overwhelmed, Dr. T retreats to his country club’s golf course, adding a new woman to his life – an easy-going golf pro called Bree (Helen Hunt). As his daughter’s wedding approaches the doctor’s life continues to unravel, his wife files for divorce, his long time nurse (Shelley Long) molests him, his daughters hate each other and Bree won’t return his calls. He has to escape and gets into his car and drives to Mexico until he runs out of gas. Will he find the hope he is looking for?...more
