Starting with the opening scene (no big spoilers here) where a naked man snorting a line of cocaine off of the main character's naked rear end, the movie is nothing but a long, drawn-out salacious heterosexual man's fantasy of a soccer mom gone bad.
The concept was done so much better in "Weeds" but in this unimaginative treatment the improbably young and attractive mother drinks Johnny Walker from the bottle yet never looks the least bit tipsy, chain smokes, steals a mini-van, sleeps with a random hitchhiker in a dumpy motel. Then, naturally, meets a stripper, takes a job in a strip club, and we get to see her and her stripper friend half naked for most of the rest of the movie.
While the movie is long on shots of partially clothed women, drinking, and smoking, and the acting is pretty good, it is a little hard to find the point, if you can make it all the way to the end.
Claire, a suburban mother indulging in some good-natured hedonistic debauchery, receives word from her child that he is abandoning her as his mother. To win back his affection, she decides to carry a small rock half way around the world to its place of origin on a Mediterranean island. Along the way, she goes to work in a strange strip club on the edge of civilization where exotic dancers perform in an otherworldly space for abandoned souls just like her.
