Four mothers connected by the elementary school their children attend decide to take a break from family life. A shared joint dissipates early tensions, and the women hit the town for a wine- soaked, fun night out. What follows is an increasingly rowdy party as the women, getting more inebriated, end up in an escalating series of madcap situations. Discussions on sex, marriage, vajazzling and the state of their careers and love lives – as impacted by being a mom – lead these women to the discovery that they are defined by far more than motherhood. Toni Collette and Molly Shannon, with Katie Aselton and Bridget Everett, are excellent in this delightfully naughty comedy with heart.
"There's clearly a family resemblance here to Jones' award-winning short Lemonade Stand, a typically Australian bit of comedy quirkiness that also demonstrates Jones' knack for production design, whimsy and gross-out humor. With talents like those, she ought to go far in this town." – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
