Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny.
A con artist moves her son to a conservative neighborhood in Oklahoma in an effort to build a better future, but it doesn't take long for her past to catch up with her, and for her son's behavior to cause problems of its own.
A comedic story of the search for identity and the redemptive power of unexpected friendship. Danielle is the dirty girl of Norman High School.

The film heavily features the music of Melissa Manchester, as Clarke (Jeremy Dozier) is a big fan. The song "Rainbird" was actually co-written by Manchester and Mary Steenburgen, who plays Clarke's mother. See more »
The movie is supposedly set in 1987, but the cash the lead character is shown stealing in the trailer ($10 and $5 bills) is clearly modern U.S. currency featuring enhanced security features like large numbers and different colored inks - not bills from the 1980s. See more »
I've heard it said that this here... this here's a man's world. And some girls, they believe it. Primpin' and fussin' and holdin' out, hoping a boy will look her way. They don't know they got the power. As for me... I'm not that kind of girl. I'm on top. Which begs the question... if the girl's on top, well... who's the one getting screwed?... So if it's a man's world, God wouldn't have made me.

Everything about this movie is great. The story, the soundtrack, the characters, the way it was filmed, literally everything. When I choose to watch this movie I didn't know what to expect since I didn't read summaries or watch a trailer. The reason I choose to watch this movie is because of the actress Juno Temple, who by the way did a good job. I loved her connection with Clarke, their strong friendship made the movie very interesting and their adventure and road trip made the movie enjoyable. The movie isn't all happy though, there are some sad moments. It is definitely a tear jerker especially if you can relate to the story. However, the ending is quite satisfying and I wouldn't have it another way. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has a good sense of humor and anyone who enjoys a good story line with a great lesson.
