After the vice-president's resignation over a scandal, senator 'Kay Bee' Hartmann is first in line to succeed him. The only likely skeleton in her closet is teenage daughter Ashley, on spring-break with her sorority in Texas's wild-reputed South Padre Island, trying to act cool in a desperate attempt to win back studly boyfriend William, who dumped her for a popular party animal. So the senator sends nerdy junior assistant Becky St. Germaine as chaperon. Becky takes along her former college friends, all refused by sororities and meeting for an annual joint holiday. For once it won't be tame but frightfully exciting, making up for their wasted wild years, joining the party scene with their libertine motel host and the Seven, a group of popular airheads who adopt the dog coach from the adult bunch as dance coach. One 'old' girl even attempts to seduce the hottest frat boy, gentleman Todd, which seems to work. Written by
This isn't Masterpiece Theater. You shouldn't go into it expecting that. This is pure girl FUN with the most fantastic cast of female leads. Like someone else here said, this is the film Baby Mama was meant to be. And the only downside I see to this film is that Tina Fey was not in it- besides that it stars the smartest and brightest girls on the planet. The film is pure silliness on the surface, but if you really watch you will know it has a lot of messages and deep meaning to any of us who wish they could go back and do it all over again in life knowing then what we know now. PURE FUN and I recommend it to anyone looking for 84 minutes of great escape.
