Synopsis / Plot
In John Waters' black comedy, Beverly (Kathleen Turner) certainly seems to have found the perfect balance in her life. Juggling the needs of her family with her own, she manages to keep it all moving like a well oiled machine, whether it's sending Dad, Eugene (Sam Waterston) off to work at his private dental practice, or lending a sympathetic ear to the teenage problems of her children, Misty (Ricki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard). In short, Beverly Sutpin is a supermom. When Chip's teacher mysteriously disappears after recommending therapy for Chip's unhealthy fondness of gore films, Misty's new boyfriend winds up brutally murdered after standing her up and one of dad's patients forgets to floss and pays the ultimate price. Some begin to wonder if mom isn't all she's cracked up to be!
