Daphne Wilder is a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mom of three daughters: stable psychologist Maggie, sexy and irreverent Mae and insecure, adorable Milly - who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper. In order to prevent her youngest from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Little does Milly know, however, that her mom placed an ad in the on-line personals to find him. Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons...all in the name of love. In a battle of strong wills, the mother-daughter dynamic is tested in all its fierce, wacky complexity. The girls help Daphne finally discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love, all while trying to answer the questions: where does it begin and where should it end? Written by
She's just your normal, overprotective, overbearing, over-the-top mother.

Did You Know?
The names of the daughters, Maggie (Lauren Graham
), Milly (Mandy Moore
), and Mae (Piper Perabo
), come from an e.e. cummings poem that starts "Maggie and Milly and Molly and May went to the beach to play one day." A student in Johnny's guitar class is named Molly. See more
In the scene where Daphne is following Millie and Johnny on their first date, at one point Daphne ducks down to avoid being seen by Johnny. When doing so, we see the dog in the back seat and the head and arm of the "stunt driver" in the driver's seat. See more
Mom, why do you always wear the high tops?
I just got these, what's wrong with these?
There just kinda depressing.
Mom for your 60th birthday we'll buy you something beautiful, something that grandma Moses would not wear.
