Movie Review: Mom’s Night Out by the Erwin Brothers

Four Stars

“Ya’ll spend so much time beatin’ yourself up, it must be exhausting.”

Hilarious. Released in 2014, a comedy about ordinary folks reaching for normal. In the tradition of It’s a Wonderful Life., Mom’s Night Out affirms those who opt for the mundane and ordinary life.

“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” (William Ross Wallace , 1865)

I suspect they had a lot of fun making this movie. The production values are made-for-TV level. Lots of sight gags, sometimes to the point of being slapstick.

“Call off the choppers.” “Awww”

Good-hearted. Doesn’t take itself too seriously.

“You just be you; He’ll take care of the rest.”
