Overview
Betty never misses an episode of her favorite soap opera, "A Reason to Love." After a mind-altering run-in with two hit-men while watching an episode, Betty transforms into 'Nurse Betty' and embarks on a mission to find her one true love, Dr. David Ravell.

Follow Betty on a wild and hysterical cross-country trek in search of the man of her dreams. But, can Betty find him before the hit-men find her?

Starring 3-time Oscar® nominee MORGAN FREEMAN (Seven), RENÉE ZELLWEGER (Me, Myself and Irene), CHRIS ROCK (Lethal Weapon 4) and Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee GREG KINNEAR (As Good As It Gets).

Easter Eggs
From the disc’s main menu, go to the 'Special Features' section of the disc. Once you get there, press the 'right' arrow key on your remote control and the candle on the cupcake in Betty’s hand will be highlighted. If you hit 'Enter' now, you will be treated to an alternate version of a scene from the movie that features slightly different dialogue in some parts.

Another hidden feature can be found in the 'Special Features' section of the disc. Once there, select the 'Reason to Love' Soap Opera. On this screen you can access nine excerpts from episodes of the fictitious daytime drama so influential to the characters of the film. Some of these excerpts actually contain scenes deleted or never used in the film.
However, there is a tenth, final excerpt - with a surprising beginning - that's well worth looking at after you've viewed the other excerpts from the show. Press the 'Right' arrow key on your remote control and the 'A Reason to Love' logo at the top of the page will be highlighted. Hit 'Enter' to view the tenth excerpt.
