A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. Her new confidence empowers her to live fearlessly, but what happens when she realizes her appearance never changed?
Pete and Debbie are both about to turn 40, their kids hate each other, both of their businesses are failing, they're on the verge of losing their house, and their relationship is threatening to fall apart.
Despite having a love/hate relationship with her scoundrel of a father Gordon Townsend, the one thing Amy Townsend has grown up believing from him is that monogamy isn't realistic, he and Amy's mom who broke up due to infidelity when Amy was young. As such, she gets drunk and stoned frequently in her pursuit of indiscriminate sex, with an unstated rule that there is no sleeping over once the sex is over. Her current "boyfriend", Steven, believes they are exclusive, not knowing that she sleeps with other men. Working at sensationalistic magazine S'nuff under head sensationalist Dianna, Amy is in line for a promotion, she certain to get it if her next story meets Dianna's scrutiny. That story is a profile of sports doctor to the stars, Dr. Aaron Conners, it despite Amy knowing nothing about sports. To Amy's amazement, Aaron wants to date her following their first sexual encounter, his sexual history in terms of quantity which is in extreme contrast to her own. Also to her amazement, she...Written by

When Amy attempts the running slam dunk, she lands face down with her left arm over her head and her right arm at her side, hand underneath her, not moving, as shown by the overhead camera. When Dr. Conner runs over, both arms are outstretched above her head, even though she hasn't moved. See more »
Okay, so you had the salmon. That's about $14...
What're you doing man?

Dude, are you trying to split the bill?
Look, I told you those refills weren't free.
No, no, no, no. We're not splitting the bill. Pick up the check.
Why do I have to pick up the check?
Because you're LeBron James.

The Amy/Donald bedroom scene ends differently in the FX Networks version. Instead of cursing when Donald's mother reveals his age, Amy protests, "He made me hit him!" Donald's mother yells at Amy to get out. As Amy leaves, Donald cries, "I only wanted to show her my writing!" See more »
Mostly Unfunny, unredeemingly ugly, and a bit boring really.
I really enjoy Amy's TV show and was expecting big things from this movie but ended up feeling I'd wasted my time watching it and it's off delivery leave a bad taste in the mouth. Was it that Amy just wasn't up to a feature length film or was it Judd Apatow's direction that made this not work. Where Amy's mischievous bad taste gender stereotype flipping gags work on her show, here they were missing the knowing nod. Amy fitted her self centered character's skin too well and at feature length you started to believe this was a real person and someone you wouldn't want to spend time with, even in a movie. Schummer was too ugly, and I don't mean that in a physical sense. Hader was good, as were most of the actors, apart from the product placement sports stars. It really started to drag in the last 3rd, possibly because it had nowhere to go, which is exactly where it ended up.
