A naive housewife become a resolute detective: Paul Feig's new film is fast-paced and blackly funny. Is it really friendship that links the moderately successful Mum-blogger Stephanie and the extravagant fashion PR boss Emily – or is Emily only interested in single mum Stephanie when her busy schedule gets too much? When Emily asks her to pick up Emily's son Nicky from school again, Stephanie is happy to oblige. But then Stephanie waits in vain for Emily to collect Nicky – and Emily remains missing for the following days and weeks. What's happened to her? Stephanie starts looking for her and discovers unknown qualities as a detective.
