After a dental hygienist's unfaithful husband dies, she discovers that her son has been lying about his life and she must find a way to take care of herself and her son.
"Jenna Fischer (TV's The Office) gives ""a game-changing performance"" (The New York Post) in this irresistible and offbeat award-winning comedy set in 2002. Laura, a Long Island dental hygienist, sneaks cigarettes and pounds back beers to cope with her unfaithful husband (Chris O'Donnell, Scent of a Woman), overbearing family, and a brother-in-law (Rob Benedict, Supernatural), who’s loved her since high school. Her life really spins out of control when her husband suddenly dies and her 12-year-old son (Daniel Yelsky) tells an outrageous lie at school to impress his new classmates. Laura’s going to need a little help to settle into a normal life…or a lot more beer! Academy Award-nominee Lesley Ann Warren (Victor/Victoria), Ron Leibman (Norma Rae) and Brooke Smith (Silence of the Lambs) costar in this ""highly entertaining and richly human movie experience"" (Box Office) from the creator of King of Queens."
