Storyline

Eileen Cleary has just been nominated for Catholic Woman of the year when her family drop a bombshell. Over the dinner table she discovers that not only is her son leaving his wife and children for the local beautician, but her daughter is 5 months pregnant and about to marry her girlfriend. Desperate to win the award, Eileen is conflicted between shame over her family and still desiring to do the right thing by them. Unable to accept either of their choices her family begins to splinter, with even her husband threatening to leave. Ultimately this is a feel-good movie and Eileen proves herself to be a person worthy of both the award and her family. Written by Ida Raine

I am always disappointed when I see that a movie makes fun and is blatantly disrespectful of anyone's religion.
12 May 2012 | by AnatomedicsSee all my reviews

The movie world hasn't gotten bad enough I guess. I have barely seen a good movie for a long time come out of Hollywood. This one is, to me, just awful and thrown together, not as a story, but a few scenes to push someone's obvious disdain across about something they passionately hate. In this case, this is a person with a tremendous hatred for the Catholic Church....It is one of the worst films to come along in ages. And, by the way, incorrect in every way. The film contains all the usual anti-Catholic prejudice, invented and targeted humor, it touches purposely on all of the areas of concern in society such as premarital sex and homosexuality, abortion theme and some bad language. Just anything an anti-Catholic, anti-intellectual movie company could possibly gather together to make a film...It doesn't fool me though, it didn't change my feeling at all about my church....Shame on this.
