The inspiring story of the The Moochmore girls who are certain they all suffer from some kind of undiagnosed neurotic mental issue - because after all, if they’re not crazy then that means they are just are unpopular. Their mother Shirley (Gibney) - unable to cope with her energetic daughters and unsupportive, philandering politician husband, Barry (LaPaglia) – lives in a fantastical world of the Family Von Trapp and the songs of The Sound of Music keep her belief that she has the ideal family alive. When her delusions lead her to believe her husband has won Wheel of Fortune and proceeds to buy a houseful of new furniture, he can take no more and commits his wife to a mental hospital. An absentee father all of these years, he finds himself alone with 5 teenage girls he barely knows. Desperate, he impulsively picks up Shaz (Collette), an eccentric hitchhiker, who becomes the girls’ nanny and transforms their lives with her unconventional beliefs. Shaz is charismatic, hot tempered, inspiring, and completely nuts. However, she proves to be exactly what the Moochmore family needs. If not for the shark hunter (Schreiber), who throws a twist in all of their plans, there just may be a happy ending.
