Spontaneous and romantic comedy!
Keaton and Garr along with Mull are combined with good supporters to make for a refreshing movie of witty humour which is fun for most anyone. You won't be disappointed if you want a good comedy with mild adult situations. Erik Shibley LacyRead full review...

Being a mom is not as easy as it looks
Although Mr. Mom is an older movie it still speaks to events affecting many households today; Dad the primary bread winner losses his job and mom brushes up on her skills and takes the role of bread winner. Hence, dad becomes mom.
The movies takes you through dad being inept and overwhelmed by running the house to finding his way of coping and making it work. The underlying message is being a stay at home mom is not as easy as it looks; it is hard work and often a thankless job.
The movie is funny and at times far-fetched, but enjoyable to watch.
I definitely recommend this movie for an evening of fun, humor, and thought provoking consideration of the man of the house.Read full review...

Mr. Mom is the Ultimate in Laughs
Michael Keaton (Beetlejuice and Batman) is a scream of laughs in this movie. He plays an automobile executive, Jack Butler, who loses his job in the 1980s and cannot find employment. On the other hand, his wife Caroline, (Teri Garr) who enters the job market in desperation for money, has no problem. So the result is that Jack becomes the stay-at-home parent, which was very unusual in those days.
The laughs begin when everything goes wrong for Jack: a washing machine with connecting hoses that go wild, a vacuum cleaner that has a mind of its own, the school with drives for in and out, the grocery shopping in the days before bar-coding, and so on. Jack becomes addicted to "The Young and The Restless" and lets himself go. When he finally cleans up, the neighbor played by Ann Jillian makes a play for him. The neighbor wives kidnap Jack and take him to a Ladies night at a local male strip joint.
The laughs continue with Caroline, now an important employee in an advertising agency: her boss (Martin Mull) won't leave her alone sexually in the days before sexual harassment lawsuits. She is trying to win the contract with a tuna processing company with a president who is hard to please.
There is some melodrama to the movie too. Caroline misses Halloween with her kids because she has to go out of town. The youngest child faces the fear of having to give up his wobbie--a blanket. The husband and wife have a dilemma when they think that the other is having an affair.
If you ever need to escape a world of problems, this is the movie for you to take your mind off of everything. It is right up there with "Overboard" as my number one favorite comedy.Read full review...
