“All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours—what could go wrong? MOMS’ NIGHT OUT is an endearing true-to-life family comedy that celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.”
What a delight to be able to attend a preview of this movie, which premieres in theaters on May 9, 2014. For those of you familiar with Grey’s Anatomy, you’ll recognize Dr. April Kepern (Sarah Drew) in the main role as mom Allyson. We quickly get a glimpse into her hectic life as a stay-at-home mother to three adorable children. The comedy soon starts and flows throughout the film. I found myself and others around me laughing out loud to some of the outrageous, yet very believable, antics that she finds herself in with her kids!
I also loved Patricia Heaton’s (Everybody Loves Raymond) character as the pastor’s wife. She brings some very unpredictable, hysterical notes to the movie, I especially loved the scene in the bowling alley, once you see it, I think that you’ll agree! She really does a convincing character throughout the whole movie, you forget that she was ever married to Raymond!
My favorite of the movie, however, hands-down, has to be Trace Adkins (Bones!). He offers a character that is both gruff, but unexpectedly heartwarming at times. The scene that I found most endearing was when he sat and talked with Allyson in a most unlikely setting (you’ll see when you go see the film!).
Both my sister and I absolutely loved the movie and laughed throughout it. I thought that she put it in a nutshell when she said, “it made most of the events “real” adding humor to it – events that have happened and good chance of happening to an average “Mom” with kids… I connected and could relate to Moms’ night out…”. I wholeheartedly agree with her, that’s what made the movie so endearing.
Did I mention that there was a good amount of men that attended this preview who were also belly-laughing at a lot of the scenes? This really is a film for the whole family to enjoy, no bad language, no sexy scenes, just pure, clean fun!
Opens May 9 USA & Canada!
