Synopsis

Told in colorful, comedic and musical interludes with all the pop sensibilities you have come to expect from a PJ Hogan film, MENTAL tells the quirky, comedic and often inspiring story of the Moochmore family. The Moochmore girls are certain they suffer from some kind of undiagnosed neurotic mental issue a' because after all, if they're not crazy then they are just unpopular. Unable to cope with her peculiar daughters and Barry (LaPaglia), her unsupportive, philandering politician husband, Shirley (Gibney) lives in the fantastical world of the Family Von Trapp and the songs of The Sound of Music. When her delusions become too much to bear, Barry commits Shirley to a mental hospital and finds himself alone with five teenage girls he barely knows. Desperate, he impulsively picks up an eccentric hitchhiker named Shaz (Collette), who becomes the girlsa 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 a shark hunter (Schreiber) who throws a twist in to their plans, there may just be a happy ending.

    I think it's fantastic that Disney is doing a movie on mental health for younger audiences. Kudos. Hopefully other studios will follow suit.

    Mad Max:Fury Road must be the most action-packed movie I've ever seen. Mental and brilliant

    Black Swan is a really good movie. But I'm still confused about the story. Like did she have a mental disorder or something?

  • @_AshleyHarseim

    Go ahead and try to tell me the new kids movie "its all in your head" isn't foreshadowing mental illness for kids to understand

  • @fractaldcm

    This movie did a lot to help people understand the tragedy of mental illness. Very sad but glad they are together. https://t.co/8LZwcVO5qc
