Two women unknowingly share the same man, but when he disappears, both go out looking for him and enter his surprisingly dangerous life.
There was a row between who would get top billing on the film. First billing on the film print at both the start and closing credits went to Shelley Long with Bette Midler being second billed. But many of the movie posters and DVD covers have Midler billed first. Midler had previously starred in Touchstone's comedy-smash Ruthless People (1986) whereas Long had similarly starred in the hit-comedy Night Shift (1982). Midler ended up being Golden Globe nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy/Musical for her role in Outrageous Fortune (1987), suggesting her performance was the more dominant of the two leads, and thus, getting top billed post-theatrical release on the home-video and DVD covers, with Long having the prime billing still on the film print.
