"It's mainly on the other side because it's so hard for me to do it on the side where I did it 30 years ago. I'm sure fans will talk at length about why it's on the other side," she told Entertainment Weekly. "It's just something I came up with the first week. This is big comedy, so you don't have to be subtle or have a 40-page Shakespearean backstory."

However, the film explains what happened to Mary's mouth. Kathy explained, "In the beginning there's a scene where Winnie hits me and my mouth goes to the other side, and then she hits me again and it goes to the other side and gets stuck."
