Show me a woman who's happy about turning forty and I'll show you the electro-convulsive therapy scorch marks. Losing her job to a young journalist is not the only ingrown pube in the bikini wax of Lizzie's life.

Even worse, Britney persuades the hitherto idealistic Hugo to operate in her new cosmetic surgery clinic.
