In a bizarre version of suburbia, soccer moms and best friends Jill and Lisa are locked in a passive-aggressive battle of the wills. Things only get weirder when Jill’s husband develops a taste for pool water and Lisa becomes pregnant with a football; just the tip of the iceberg in this hilariously demented satire destined to be a cult classic.
In a day-glo-coloured, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill and Lisa are locked in a passive-aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn for the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life, starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball.
That’s just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is the feature debut from writers-directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, a hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to be an instant cult classic.
Starring Jocelyn DeBoer, Dawn Luebbe, Beck Bennett.
