Last month I had the absolute pleasure of pre-screening the movie Moms’ Night Out. I’ll admit, I really wasn’t sure what the movie was about. I had seen a quick commercial here and there about it, but hadn’t really picked up on what it was about. All I cared about was the fact that I was out on a date…with no kids. So for me, it was mom’s night out with her boyfriend.
The funny part when we got to the theater was Fred asking if he could go watch another movie (somewhat jokingly) because all he saw was a sea of women walking into the movie. Thankfully, once we got our seats, he saw several other men. heh heh heh
As a mom, I was able to immediately relate to the main character, who also happens to be a blogger. I would say that we weren’t 2 minutes into the movie and I was laughing my butt off! The entire theater was.
Allyson is a young mom of 3. She’s a mom who just needs a break. I mean, if you work in an office, you get to leave at the end of the day and have weekends off. Being a SAHM is a job that’s 24/7/365. Just one night, that’s all she wants. And what I love, her husband is all for it. He really sees what she does as a mom is valuable.
The dads…oh the dads…they’re going to help out. They’re going to pitch in so the moms can have some grown up time. You know THAT’S going to be interesting.
I have to admit, I could relate a lot to Allyson and to Sondra. As a mom, we either feel like we’re failing our kids and family or we don’t want anyone to know any of the problems going on and we just put on a happy face. The way they do it in this move has you laughing about it while taking it in. If you’re a dad, you can relate to your wife’s craziness, too.
What I love about this movie is that it truly IS family friendly. No swearing, no nudity, nothing suggestive, etc. We need so many more movies like this. It would be nice not to have to read the reviews on Plugged In Online every time the boys or I want to see a movie.
Moms’ Night Out is in theaters May 9th, Mother’s Day weekend. Yes, very apropos. Do the moms in your life a favor and give them a good chuckle and a night out. If you’re a dad, suggest your wife get a few ladies together and go see it or make it a family night. If you want more movies like this, you need to get out and see it! You won’t be disappointed, trust me!
My pastor’s wife came up to me last weekend and told me she’s getting a group of women together to go see it! I’m so excited. Wishing I was home to see it with them!
