description

People say there's never a perfect time to have a baby. Jackie and Elliot beg to differ. There WILL be a perfect time – just as soon as they've fixed all their own issues and become the kind of people who won't fuck up their own kids the way their parents fucked them up. They really thought they were ready until they had a baby shower. When their friends bombard them with war-torn tales of parenting failures and unrealized dreams, Jackie and Elliot begin to second-guess themselves. They realize that if they want to break their cycles of dysfunction once and for all, they'll have to confront their deepest fears and greatest shortcomings head-on. So with less than a month until their due date, they embark on a madcap mission to do exactly that. When the smoke clears, they'll either be the world's greatest parents ... or they'll be institutionalized.
