Laura Miller (Bonnie Somerville) is a stay-at-home mom. It's Mother's Day weekend and nobody seems to notice other than her daughter's school assignment. Her dream of Paris is fading as her husband (James Tupper) cancels. An eaten school cake is the last straw and she decides to stay with her successful single sister Trish (Ona Grauer) who has a great boyfriend.

Her family is completely inconsiderate. They're rather annoying when they need to be adorably clueless. The cake is a prime example. It's adorably clueless to take little bites. It's annoying that they finish it off. When they run over the pot, they should comment on it. Her adventures aren't that adventurous. It's set up for one of those girls go wild adventures but this is the all together PG version. Nothing really happens. The only thing that happens is something sad with Trish's boyfriend. The family's lesson learned is a little too earnest. The whole movie needs better jokes. However, stay-at-home moms may find joy in this story.
