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
Norman Lloyd met Judd Apatow over lunch to discuss his part in the film. Lloyd claimed that Apatow was surprised that Lloyd, then 99, had driven himself to the appointment and offered to walk with him two blocks back to his car. Lloyd surmised that the walk back to his car was part of the job interview, confirming to Apatow that he was ambulatory. Apatow later expressed his amazement at Lloyd's independence, observing that he flew to New York and arrived on set alone, never asked for special services, and never needed to take breaks during filming.

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 »

It's stunning how endlessly stupid movies can be. I've never been a big fan of Apatov, his kind of humor never left high school, but then comes this film along, and voila, he lowers the bar even more.
This is a movie that thinks it has some kind of 'feminist' philosophy behind it, alas, all there is are the oldest jokes that never were funny to begin with and a story that doesn't exist. There is no wit, there are no thoughts and for sure there is no intelligence. How in heaven can those people who are involved in this thing become 'names' that supposedly stand for something, whatever that is?
Is it so liberating to watch more or less ugly people who pretend to be 'actors' say stupid stuff about sex? Wow. Sex and the city is an intellectual giant compared to that flick.
Resume: one of the worst sixpack movies for 'womens'. What an insult to mankind.
