6 Women, 2 Men (doubling)
An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt
agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother's wedding. Savannah's
problem: Mama won't fly.
With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to
drive across country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama's vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself
for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives
unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced travelling together to her wedding
is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos
ensues. Every conceivable - and inconceivable - mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all
their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a
mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an
ordained showgirl minister. As the misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each
other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride
calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the
nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own
relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family.
