I just got back from Mom’s Night Out.
I laughed so hard that I cried.
There were no off moments in this film. Hilarious guest appearances by Trace Adkins and Manuel Reyes of Group 1 Crew only added spice to a superlative family-friendly comedy.
I spent the first ten minutes of the film fighting back tears of laughter. There was an excellent mix of drama and mother-affirming soft-core Christian message mixed in, but that is not what makes this film stand out. There are some over-the-top moments but the true strength of the story is the humor of true life. Parenthood sometimes approached what this film achieves with none of the raunch or off-color humor.
Most secular films do not have such a crisp sense of timing, or try half as hard as this film’s producers, screen writers, and actors. Everything works here.
I am going to own this movie, but I may have to see it in theaters at least two more times.
I very rarely give completely unmixed reviews.
I do not endorse this movie. I demand that you go see it.
