The filmmaking brothers Andrew and Jon Erwin (October Baby) team up again to direct and produce this 98-minute laugh fest. It sustains impressive energy with running gags, impressive comic timing, helpful film editing, and endlessly entertaining situations. Sarah Drew (TV’s Grey’s Anatomy) impressively stars in the lead role of Allyson, a mother struggling to find her personal and emotional footing amid frenetic family life.
