(2014) (Sarah Drew, Patricia Heaton) (PG)
<! -- Start Quick Take -- >
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: A harried mom plans a girls' night out with two of her fellow moms, unaware of how that outing is actually going to turn out.
- Stay-at-home mom Allyson (SARAH DREW) and her architect husband Sean (SEAN ASTIN) have three young kids and a nice house. It's everything Allyson ever dreamed of, but she's unhappy. A clean freak, the constant messes overwhelm her, as do all of the other demands that come from being a parent.
As a result, she doesn't think she's a good mother, especially when compared to Sondra (PATRICIA HEATON), the wife of Pastor Ray (ALEX KENDRICK). What Allyson doesn't know is that they have their hands full with teenage daughter Zoe (SAMMI HANRATTY) who's somewhat trying to push their set boundaries. Allyson's friend, Izzy (ANDREA LOGAN WHITE), also has her hands full with young twins, as well as a husband, Marco (ROBERT AMAYA), who's less than a confident father to them.
Seeing that she's at a breaking point, Sean encourages Allyson to have a girls night out, something she had already sort of planned with Izzy and Sondra. Sean plans on watching the kids with his single and childless friend, Kevin (KEVIN DOWNES), with Marco eventually joining them at a kid-friendly amusement center they believe will make their babysitting easier. At the same time, the three women learn that their reservations at a nice restaurant have been bungled, but Allyson is determined not to give up.
That results in an impromptu trip to a nearby bowling alley, with her forgetting that Sean's half-sister, Bridget (ABBIE COBB), is now working there. When Bridget learns from them that her ex, Joey (HARRY SHUM JR.), is at the former restaurant and not babysitting their young child as promised, that sets off an escalating chain of events that ends up involving a British taxi driver, Cabbie (DAVID HUNT); a biker tattoo artist, Bones (TRACE ADKINS); his goofy front desk receptionist (MANWELL REYES); and others the ladies encounter as they try to track down their missing kids as the night continues to go out of control for them.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If any are fans of someone in the cast, they might, but a film about moms might not be terribly enticing to many kids.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For mild thematic elements and some action.
