QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A harried mom reaches the breaking point and, with the help of her two new friends and fellow moms, decides to take on the dictator-like president of the PTA.
PLOT:
Amy Mitchell (MILA KUNIS) is a thirty-something mom who's stretched in too many directions with too many demands. She tries to do the best for her young kids, Jane (OONA LAURENCE) and Dylan (EMJAY SLAUGHTER), but her deadbeat husband, Mike (DAVID WALTON), isn't much help. Things aren't much better at work where she does sales for a coffee company and everyone, including her boss, Dale (CLARK DUKE), is much younger than her. It doesn't help that the president of the middle school PTA, Gwendolyn (CHRISTINA APPLEGATE), seems to be a perfect and ultra rich mom who looks down on the likes of Amy with her equally condescending mom friends, Stacy (JADA PINKETT SMITH) and Vicky (ANNIE MUMOLO).

When Amy finally stands up to Gwendolyn's dictator-like ways, she gains the admiration of fellow harried mom Kiki (KRISTEN BELL) and wild divorced mom, Carla (KATHRYN HAHN). Despite their difference, the three become fast friends, with Carla trying to help fix up Amy with hunky dad widower Jessie (JAY HERNANDEZ), what with Amy having kicked out her husband for having an online affair. But Amy must contend with Gwendolyn's displeasure of her one-woman rule being disrespected, all of which leads to Gwendolyn trying to destroy her, especially after Amy decides she's going to run for president of the PTA against her.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into raunchy, hard R-rated comedies, they might, especially if they're a fan of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sexual material, full frontal nudity, language throughout, and drug and alcohol content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
