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.

Goofs

While the film is obviously a comedy and fictional, in real life No PTA meeting among mothers especially on school campus would tolerate the F-Bomb or suggested sexual and or drug use being dropped as much as what was portrayed in this film. In fact, anything including the binge drinking connected to any school sponsored event would have met with dire sanctions. This holds true to the Amy's job as well with the F-Bomb being dropped all over the place as it creates a hostile work environment for those females or even males who find the cursing or sexual remarks offensive among mixed company. No corporate manager would allow it. See more »

simply fun
20 October 2016 | by nickk222See all my reviews

Don't expect anything new or mind-blowing - it is simply 90 minutes of pure fun. No sophisticated plot - mother of 2 is having hard time balancing her kids, husband and work, so she decides to quit trying to do everything perfect. She stops helping kids with their homework or making their breakfast, kicks out her sort of cheating husband and decides to run for PTA president with help of two new friends - one divorced cougar and one meek housewife. Rated R - only because of strong language, which is not surprising - you can kill 100 people on screen and still be PG, but if you use C*word - you get R-rated ;) Watch it and have fun, brain-relaxing experience.
