Allyson, a wife and mother of three children, works herself to death trying to be the mom that no mom can actually be. Trying to handle the screaming, crying, messy kids is finally taking its toll; her husband recognizes it and suggests she go out for a night with her friends, who, unbeknownst to her, are having the same problem.
With the dads in charge or five or six kids, what could possibly go wrong?
We went and saw this movie in the theater. While it was a good movie, it would have been just as good at home.
While being very clean, I felt like several parts of it were far fetched, with things going from bad, to worse, to the unthinkable, but we still laughed. We also agreed that the message at the end was not super clear, when it should have been a clear message. I am still trying to figure out why it is PG and not G.
Overall Rating: 4/5
Audience: 8 and up (it is still clean for younger kids, but some of it may be over their heads)
