This post is your guide to the film. Everything you need to know about the cast, plot, and where to watch it is here.
Story of and behind Queenpins
Based on the true story of a coupon fraud pulled out by three ladies from Arizona named Robin Ramirez, Marilyn Johnson, and Amiko “Amy” Fountain. Ramirez, who was 40 when she was arrested, was thought to be the group’s leader. You can read the full story here.
The plot follows the growth of a multi-million dollar coupon fraud that stumped law enforcement for years. Connie(Kristien Bell) is a suburban housewife who feels her efforts have gone unrecognized. No one in her family pays her any attention, and society, as a whole, ignores her. Hence, Connie decides to join her closest friend JoJo’s (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) shady coupon club. Together, the two closest buddies defraud dozens of companies out of millions of dollars.
But not until their grand con is too large to remain covert. Law enforcement is actively pursuing this fraudulent coupon club and is prepared to prosecute both of these ladies if necessary. The scam got so huge that a postal inspector and a loss prevention officer had to get on the case.
