NotesA couple (Broderick and Fonda) with a troubled marriage decide to go to Battle Creek Sanitarium which offers a strict regime based on healthy food and sexual abstinence. En route they meet Charlie Ossining (Cusack) who is one of many endeavouring to make a fortune out of health foods. The sanatorium is run by Dr. Kellogg (Hopkins) who invented the corn flake. The 'cure' is of the extreme kind involving enemas. Dr. Kellogg has a speech impediment caused by his large set of false teeth. From the novel by T. Coraghessan Boyle.
