With a laugh-packed mix of big-screen, small-screen and music stars, Patricia Heaton and her husband, David Hunt have executive-produced "Mom’s Night Out", a new kind of family comedy in theaters May 9, 2014–just in time for Mother’s Day.
From TriStar Pictures, distributors of Soul Surfer and Courageous, "Mom’s Night Out" has early audiences raving about its laugh-out-loud portrayal of the chaos of parenting. With its PG rating this clean comedy will be a hit with families everywhere.
Heaton is one of America’s top female comedic actresses and the well-known star of Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle, two of the most popular television comedies of all time. She joins Sarah Drew, Sean Astin, and platinum-selling country recording artist Trace Adkins in a story both hilarious and endearing for its spot-on view on parenting and real-life family relationships.
In the story, Allyson (Sarah Drew) and her friends long for a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and talk–a long-overdue “moms’ night out.” But to indulge in high heels, adult conversation, and not having to cut anyone else’s meat, their husbands will need to watch the kids for a few hours. What could go wrong?
"Every mom and dad in America–whether they have toddlers, tweens or teens–is going to love this movie,” Heaton said. “It's a hilarious family-friendly celebration of the trials and triumphs of parenting–a joyous affirmation of the world's hardest but most important job."
Drew loves the layered storylines–a family comedy several times over. “And then it’s a full-on love story about two people who already know each other,” she said. “Every mom knows that juggling act. And every audience that sees it says, “That’s my life!”
Co-writer/director Jon Erwin says the best humor begins at home. “My brother, Andy, and I love being dads, and everything in this movie happened to us . . . just last week!”
Written by Andrea Nasfell and Jon Erwin, "Mom’s Night Out" was filmed in Birmingham, Ala., and is being distributed by AFFIRM Films and Provident Films. "Mom’s Night Out" is rated PG for mild thematic elements and some action.
