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.
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?

I am completely honest and not exaggerating, this must be the worst film I've ever seen! It is a romantic comedy made of randomly patched clichés and some very cheap humor. There's no plot cohesion, and whatever happens in the movie lacks a development, it's there to be just a filler. The protagonist is a cynical woman who happens to be a very one- dimensional character too. I guess that's all about it. I was sure the movie must have been universally panned. And then I was stunned to realize the film holds a score of 6.8 in IMDb and 85% in Rotten Tomatoes.
