A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. Her new confidence empowers her to live fearlessly, but what happens when she realizes her appearance never changed?
Pete and Debbie are both about to turn 40, their kids hate each other, both of their businesses are failing, they're on the verge of losing their house, and their relationship is threatening to fall apart.
Despite having a love/hate relationship with her scoundrel of a father Gordon Townsend, the one thing Amy Townsend has grown up believing from him is that monogamy isn't realistic, he and Amy's mom who broke up due to infidelity when Amy was young. As such, she gets drunk and stoned frequently in her pursuit of indiscriminate sex, with an unstated rule that there is no sleeping over once the sex is over. Her current "boyfriend", Steven, believes they are exclusive, not knowing that she sleeps with other men. Working at sensationalistic magazine S'nuff under head sensationalist Dianna, Amy is in line for a promotion, she certain to get it if her next story meets Dianna's scrutiny. That story is a profile of sports doctor to the stars, Dr. Aaron Conners, it despite Amy knowing nothing about sports.

Pretty funny movie, maybe not the best thing ever, but I liked it!
Honestly, I'm surprised there are so many poor reviews for this movie. Yes, granted it's not gonna be my favorite movie and it plays off of some clichés and is vulgar..... but what the heck did these people expect?! Considering it was written and performed by Amy, I'm pretty damn impressed. There were some parts I thought could have been a little different or cut (subway scene to finale), other parts made me laugh out loud and think of this movie in hindsight (calling for the check part). As a feminist, I'm always gonna root for a show that can show a strong female character who's not a size 0 and doesn't mind slutting it up a bit. But I loved the chemistry between the main characters (probably because I wasn't expecting it) and I had a good time watching! I hope Amy keeps it up, she's cool.
