Soapdish (1991)

I love a good sudser.  I've been a Days of Our Lives fan since I was a kid and had internships at All My Children and The Bold and The Beautiful in college.  Yes, I even watched Passions (Martimmy anyone?).  And if The Sun Also Sets was a real soap, I probably would've tuned in as well. Soapdish is a hilarious parody of the daytime drama with an incredible ensemble cast and all the necessary elements: backstabbing co-stars, a decapitated man back from the dead, a homeless deaf mute who regains her speech, a transsexual and a rare case of Kopfgeschlagen.    

Soapdish was filmed in New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA
