Lazy Susan - Official Trailer.
Susan O'Connell (Sean Hayes) is a woman in her 40s with no job or ambition, and has been financially dependent on her family for her whole life. She chronically sleeps past noon and does nothing but make collages all day long. Susan must regularly ask for rent money from her mother, Mary. Susan's brother Cameron and his wife Wendy both despise that Susan burdens Mary, who is single and in poor health; it is mentioned that Mary's husband abandoned the family when Susan and Cameron were young. Susan's only friends are Corrine (Carrie Aizley), who is married with children, and Cameron and Wendy's young daughter Jenika (Willa Skye), who admires Susan's artistic abilities.
Susan frequently either lies to others about her job status or sensationalizes reasons why she cannot work. She has an ongoing rivalry with Velvet Swensen (Allison Janney), a former high school classmate who works at the local K-Mart that Susan frequents. Each woman brags to the other about her accomplishments, but while Susan's are all fabricated, it is implied that Velvet's are real.
One day Susan is rear-ended while paused at a stop sign. She finds that the man who hit her car is Phil (Jim Rash), a member of her gym to whom she is attracted. Phil and Susan flirt with each other, and the two begin dating. Susan quickly defaults to her typical modus operandi of mooching off of others, and relies on Phil to support her financially; Phil generously showers her with clothes and gifts. Susan brags to her family and Velvet about Phil, whom she believes is the only promising thing in her life, and begins planning her future around him.
