Ruth has a serious case of arrested development. She works at a supermarket and lives in her dad’s basement, getting wasted, watching “Wayne’s World,” and eating chips. Typical teenage behavior – except Ruth is pushing 35. Her girlfriends are into their little families and won’t party anymore. Totally obsessed with pregnancies, they meet for tea and chart their menstrual cycles. Ruth’s juvenile behavior is too much, and they kick her out of their mommy clique. One day, Ruth gives a maternity saleslady the impression she’s pregnant. Big mistake: she doesn’t correct the impression. Word gets out about the blessed event to be, and things snowball out of control. Her dad (James Caan) is overjoyed; and Ruth suddenly finds herself respected by her fellow humans. But a fake pregnancy is hard to maintain, especially after she bonds with a guy in the frozen food aisle. Ruth must make a decision: to escape from PREGGOLAND or embrace her inner mom? – B.B.
