In this wild and wacky comedy, you'll find out how far the bonds of a family can be stretched before they break. Teen jump-roping star Emily (Olesya Rulin) is fed up with her parents (Kristin Chenoweth, Matthew Modine), who seem to have forgotten she exists. In a fit of desperation, she decides to kidnap them and hold them hostage until they shape up. She enlists help from her quirky siblings and straight talking grandma (Shirley Jones) but things quickly go south and soon the whole debacle ends up on the Internet. When the cops get involved, the plan spins completely out of control, and Emily soon finds out how difficult it can be to change the family structure. Can the bonds between a family be stretched so far without being broken?
