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.

Did You Know?


The Russian-speaking mom at the PTA meeting said she has three hundred AK-47s at home. See more »


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 »


Stacy: You know what, I think I'd let him put it in my butt. I'm not really into the butt thing but I would let him go to town back there.
Vicky: I'm with you.

User Reviews

One of the funniest movies of the year and one that men and women will both love plus the message doesn't get lost in the comedy.
1 November 2016 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"In this day and age it's impossible to be a good mom." Amy (Kunis) is doing her best to juggle being a mom and having a career. Things begin to pile up and finally hits a breaking point when she is asked to be on a PTA board. Now, taking back control of her life her and her new friends stand up to Gwendolyn (Applegate) and the other perfect moms and let everyone know that it's OK not to be perfect. This is a movie I was was hoping would be funny, but being a guy I wasn't the target audience and wasn't sure if I would relate. I was wrong. This movie is hilarious regardless of what sex your are and being a single dad I can also relate to some of what was being said. At the risk of sounding chauvinistic (which is not my intention) this is a raunchy male sex comedy starring women. The thing this has going for it over most movies like this is that the message doesn't get lost in the comedy and really helps add to the overall enjoyment of this. Overall, one of the funniest movies of the year and one that men and women will both love. That is hard to do in a movie like this. I give this an A.
