About the movie
In this new comedy from the grateful husbands and devoted fathers who wrote The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she's over-worked, 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.
For example Mila told us a story that I think we all can relate to. One that you know probably has happened to you in the past but we are all very proud to admit: "Wyatt was like at seven, eight months old, and I was driving to visit my husband at work. And driving with an eight month old for a couple hours is like going on a road trip. So, you have to pack all this stuff up in anticipation of everything going horribly wrong with the first baby. Second baby doesn't matter. First baby, you're like, oh, my God, everything's going to go wrong. So, you pack the car up with all this stuff. And I was like I did it. I put her in the car. Like, I high five myself. I'm driving down the 101. And I was like oh, my God, I'm doing really good today. And he was being really quiet, and I was like, oh, let me look in the rear view mirror to make sure everything's okay. And I look, and she's happy as can be, but just not nearly strapped in." (It cannot get more real than this!)
Christina Applegate told us that some of her favorite memories from filming were:"Talking with all the girls in a circle in our chairs about politics and our children. That was the conversation every day. It went back and forth from being a mother and politics, mother, politics, mother, politics, mother, politics. They kind of go hand in hand because one's going to form the future for our offspring as well."
Annie Mumolo told us that her least favorite part of motherhood are "the hours between 4:30 and bedtime. The dinner to the bath to the books to the brush your teeth to get in your pajamas to the bed, that whole thing to me, I need breaks in the middle. I go in my closet. I take a few minutes and breathing. There's wine. There's little mini breaks and checking out and then checking back in and then like regrouping and okay. We got to get to the bath. Oh, God. Oh, my God." (I think we all can relate)
