Synopsis

This charming comedy gives hysterical new meaning to “coming of age.�? Sixteen-year-old Kimberly Levaco (Mary Lynn Owen) has a rare condition that accelerates her physical growth by four and a half times the normal rate, making her physically older than her parents, and causing her to resemble the school lunch ladies more than her high school classmates. When her parents decide to have another baby, realizing that their only daughter is nearing her average life expectancy, Kimberly’s world is thrown upside down as she must help her bumbling father (Alcott) care for her hypochondriac, carpal tunnel surgery-recovering, pregnant mother (Kincaid). Into the hysterical chaos pops crazy Aunt Debra (Roberts), a mysterious foul-mouthed ex-con, with her plan to use Kimberly’s condition in her latest larceny attempt. Debra’s presence rattles the already unstable home environment, as she also carries the secret surrounding the Levaco’s dubious move from their hometown. Amid the insanity at home, Kimberly befriends Jeff (Aggers), an awkward boy fond of anagrams and popping Ritalin who works at the local Zippy Burger, and finds new determination in comically sweet first love to make the most of the time she has left.
