Suburban supermom Eileen Cleary (Academy Award® nominee Kathleen Turner) is the ultimate Catholic and when she’s nominated for the coveted Catholic Woman of the Year Award at her local parish, it looks like she’s about to get the plaque to prove it. Only one final test remains – introducing her family to the church board for the seal of approval.
Now, she must face the truth about her nonconformist family – a truth she has been glossing over for years. With her gay daughter (Emily Deschanel) about to marry her life partner, her unhappily married son having an affair with the local manicurist, and her own marriage to a recovered alcoholic pulling at the seams, Eileen decides to take action, ramping up her meddling to new, and hilarious, heights. As she does, she begins to question what makes a family perfect – how it looks from the outside, or how it feels on the inside.
