So, we did the only thing that avid movie-lovers could do. . . We headed to the nearest big city a little over an hour away to shop and watch said movie. I had my fingers crossed that we wouldn't be disappointed. I mean, I was the one to beg and plead that we take a trip with this film as the main reason. I'll admit, as we each paid our $10 admission fee, I was sweatin' a little. I so didn't want Moms' Night Out to turn out to be one of those B-movies that showed all the best parts in the trailer. I bought the tub of popcorn as way of peace offering, just in case.
Tub of popcorn--unnecessary.
Moms' Night Out did not disappoint! We had a fantastic time watching our lives play out in a bit of a spoof that brought out the worst and best parts of motherhood. There were many, many genuine laughs during this movie. There is a touch of Christian base to it, but not so much that you feel like you've been to Sunday School. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy those movies (see previous post), but this movie talked about the importance of motherhood in a funny, clean, "night-gone-wrong" way that was not only entertaining, but uplifting, as well.
I think this film does what it set out to do. We left ready to greet our families again, grateful to be mothers. Could there be a greater compliment to a movie?
So don't hesitate to grab your moms, sisters, and girlfriends (or even your whole family), and enjoy the laughs that Moms' Night Out shares, along with its powerful message.
Most definitely recommend! :-D
