Mr. Mom, a review by Dragonfire


Mr. Mom



I first saw Mr. Mom years ago, probably not that long after it originally came out.  I think it was when I stayed with my grandmother.  She had HBO.  I seem to remember watching this movie over and over and over...along with some others.  Anyway, I saw it a lot years ago.  I found it on HBO recently and watched it for the first time in years.  I still really enjoyed the movie.

The idea of the dad staying home with the kids was a bit different when the movie originally came out.  Since then, I know a lot of fathers have ended up staying home with the kids while the mothers worked for whatever reason.  With how things are in this country right now and how so many people have lost jobs, that aspect of the plot is still very relevant even though some things seem a little dated.  The movie is pretty funny, though some of the humor is a bit silly.  Most of the humor comes from how Jack deals with or attempts to deal with things around the house.  The plot is fairly simple and straight forward, but the movie is still very entertaining and definitely worth checking out.  There isn't a lot of development to the characters, but the main characters are likable.  The cast does really well with their parts.



I did get a review posted on Epinions.

My Thoughts:
I haven't seen this movie in years. I remember enjoying it much more. Now I find it mostly an unfunny affair. Interesting to see Jon Stewart in a rather big supporting part. I have a few other movies with him. Even one where he is the lead (Wishful Thinking). Recently I enjoyed it in his recurring role as himself on the Larry Sanders Show. I can't wait to have my faster internet connection so I can finally see his Daily Show more often via the official homepage.

My Thoughts:
This is really just an average filler episode. really. It does little to advance the main storyline of the season. Unfortunately I couldn't get myself to care about the characters in this one. Just a nothing special episode.
