Storyline

Amy has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, a beautiful home and a career. However, she's overworked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities - going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence - putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

Oh christ.

This movie is so bad, really, it's awful. But it's amazing what kind of belly laughs it gets due to its just simple garbage nature. It's so terrible that it's amazing to watch it. 6/10 would laugh on the floor again!
