She's just your normal, overprotective, overbearing, over-the-top mother.
Diane Keaton stars as Daphne Wilder, a mother whose love knows no bounds or boundaries. She is the proud mum of three daughters; stable psychologist Maggie (Lauren Graham), sexy and irreverent Mae (Piper Perabo) and insecure, adorable Milly (Mandy Moore) – who, when it comes to men, is like psychotic flypaper.
In order to prevent her youngest daughter from making the same mistakes she did, Daphne decides to set Milly up with the perfect man. Little does Milly know, however, that her mum placed an ad in the online personals to find him. Comic mayhem unfolds as Daphne continues to do the wrong thing for the right reasons…all in the name of love.
In a hilarious battle of strong wills, the mother-daughter dynamic is tested in all it’s fierce, whacky complexity. The girls help Daphne discover the truths and impossibilities of motherly love, all while trying to answer the questions: where does it begin and where should it end.
