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

Though the time frame of the story isn't specified, judging by the green leaves on the trees in Chicago and the fact that it's middle school soccer season, it must be around September, but just before the PTA meeting starts at 5pm, the sky outside is shown as totally dark. The sun doesn't set early enough in Chicago to make it dark by 5pm until after the end of daylight savings, which is the first Sunday of November. See more »

User Reviews

So much fun, what is all of this bad press about?
5 June 2017 | by electryshianSee all my reviews

I saw this movie with 5 other women and all of us are moms. We loved the movie!!! I don't understand what all these bad reviews are about??? "Moms acting like frat boys" like that's a bad thing... Hey if you have childcare and you go out and blow off some steam why is that a negative thing? As moms in this day and age we have SO much to stress about and this movie captured that perfectly. From dealing with young children to and marriages to dealing with those seemingly "perfect" mothers this movie handled it all with refreshing humor. I've seen it several times, don't listen to the negative reviews and give it a try!
