Mrs. Winterbourne is a 1996 romantic comedy from director Richard Benjamin. Connie Doyle (Ricki Lake) is alone, homeless, and pregnant when she meets Hugh Winterbourne (Brendan Fraser) and his pregnant wife, Patricia (Susan Haskell) on a train. The couple is sympathetic to her plight and insist she join them in their cabin. When the train they are on crashes, Connie had just tried on Patricia's wedding ring. Hugh and Patricia don't survive the crash. The force of the crash sends Connie into labor. Because of the ring, emergency personnel mistake her for Patricia. When Hugh's family rallies to her side, she accepts Grace Winterbourne's (Shirley MacClaine) offer to live at the Winterbourne family home. Connie has nowhere else to go, and a baby to care for. When Connie meets Hugh's identical twin brother Bill (also Brendan Fraser), the attraction between them is mutual. Bill falls for his brother's supposed widow, and asks her to marry him. Connie has finally found the man of her dreams to be a father to her child, but would he still love her if he knew the truth?moreless
