Synopsis

Martha (Natasha Lyonne) is an overly optimistic housekeeper working at a local hotel in Fresno, California. Her sister Shannon (Judy Greer) is a sex addict that was recently forced to go into rehab after her addiction caused her to lose her job. As she now needs gainful employment, Shannon allows Martha to talk her into working at the hotel as well. However soon after she begins work Shannon accidentally kills one of the hotel's guests and convinces Martha to help her dispose of the body. This is easier said than done, as their attempts result in pet cemetery owners Ruby (Allison Tolman) and Gerald (Fred Armisen) blackmailing them for hush money. Without any other options, Martha and Shannon must now commit a series of robberies to come up with the money.

Seventeen-year-old Megan (Natasha Lyonne) is a sunny high school senior who loves cheerleading and is dating football player Jared (Brandt Wille). She does not enjoy kissing Jared, however, and prefers looking at her fellow cheerleaders. Combined with Megan's interest in vegetarianism and Melissa Etheridge, her family and friends suspect that Megan is in fact a lesbian. With the help of ex-gay Mike (RuPaul), they surprise her with an intervention. Following this confrontation, Megan is sent to True Directions, a reparative therapy camp which uses a five-step program (similar to Alcoholics Anonymous' twelve-step program) to convert its campers to heterosexuality.

Tanner Daniels (Michael J. Willett) and Brent Van Camp (Paul Iacono) are two closeted gay best friends who attend North Gateway High school, which is dominated by three feuding cliques led by the beautiful Fawcett Brooks (Sasha Pieterse), who rules over the richest and the most popular; the talented Caprice Winters (Xosha Roquemore) who leads the school's minorities and theater arts students; and 'Shley Osgood (Andrea Bowen), a nice but ditzy Mormon that leads the "goody two shoes" and conservative Christians. Brent hatches a plan to out himself at prom, which will make him the most popular boy at school since the latest trend in teen girl magazines is a G.B.F.--gay best friend. His other friends Sophie Aster (Molly Tarlov) and Glenn Bak (Derek Mio) are just as skeptical as Tanner, who would prefer to stay under the radar.
