* In ''Film/BadMoms'', Amy starts out trying to fit this trope. She loves her children and does her best to help them get through school (including doing their homework). She is also a working mom, which results in her constantly being late for everything. Her husband is lazy and is revealed to be cheating on her with a dairy farmer over Skype. Eventually, the stress gets to her, and she snaps, forcing her kids to fend for themselves, blowing off her job, and starting to party with two other moms (one of whom also fits this trope, while the other one is an oversexed single mom, who constantly ignores her son). This puts her in conflict with Gwendolyn, the head of the PTA at her kids' school, who lords over all the moms with tyrannical efficiency. Eventually, Amy manages to convince all the moms at the school to start taking it easier to avoid this much stress. Also, her new hands-off approach with her kids bears fruit. Her son becomes a pretty good cook, and her daughter is far less stressed out over her chances of going to college (and she's only 12).

She also hooks up with a widower, who also fits this trope (and finds the time to get rock-hard abs).
