Writer/director John Waters (Hairspray, Polyester, Pink Flamingos) puts a twist on the everyday mediocrity of suburban life in this killer comedy that will take you over the edge with laughter! Beverly Sutphin (Kathleen Turner) seems like the perfect happy homemaker. Along with loving dentist-husband Eugene (Sam Waterston) and their two healthy kids Misty (Riki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard), the Sutphin family is as American as apple pie. The only problem is there seems to be a worm in this particular apple. Beverly lives her life the way she believes everyone should live theirs. Not following the rules of social etiquette can be bad—very bad in Beverly's book and, like anyone who's a little upset, there are times Beverly just wants to kill someone. In fact, maybe she has, which is why the police are going through her garbage and the newspapers are calling her Serial Mom. The hilarious and unpredictable comedy that follows will come as no surprise to people who love their wholesome family movies hard-boiled!
