Movie Summary

Gena Rowlands and Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (Best Supporting Actress, My Cousin Vinny, 1993) team up in this critically-acclaimed comedy treat! Mildred (Rowlands) is a quiet suburban lady whose life is changed forever when she agrees to baby-sit for Monica, her wild and crazy neighbor (Tomei). As Mildred, a caretaker by nature, grows closer to Monica's son, J.J. (Jake Lloyd), he thrives under her watchful eye - and Mildred begins to loosen up with the help of Monica's party-girl ways. But when Monica sorts out her domestic issues, and J.J. no longer needs a babysitter, Mildred is forced to examine her life and for once, focus her energy on herself.
