Charting where this nostalgic comedy goes awry may actually require graph paper. The domestic dissatisfactions of Meredith, a shrill, alcoholic 70s housewife and sometime beauty queen, come to light in the run-up to her daughter Megan's first school dance, and are felicitously resolved when, after some soul searching, Meredith determines to forgive, forget, and quit drinking. The script redraws no emotional boundaries, and other obvious problems, like stifling marital arrangements and closeted homosexuality, receive no serious treatment, unless loads of pointless innuendo count. Drunkenness, outrage, and teen angst seem simultaneously arbitrary and forced. As Megan's dad, Guy F. Wicke brings a much-needed shot of freshness to a production otherwise inoculated against funny. —Jena Cutie
