Info 101: Movieclips 193: Nothing as wild as moms' night out

See also

"MOMS' NIGHT OUT" from TriStar Films opens Fri., May 9, 2014.

STARRING: Sarah Drew, Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin, Trace Adkins and Abbie Cobb.

DIRECTOR: Andrew and Jon Erwin.

SYNOPSIS: A faith-based comedy portraying the chaos of parenting.

This is a PG comic romp starring several big-name television and music stars. The female half of a group of married friends want a night out, time away from the day-to-day confusion of being moms. To effect this desire, they must get their male partners to watch the kids for a few hours. The tag-line is: what could go wrong? The punch-line is: we all find out.

Although Sarah Drew is the central character, Patricia Heaton is the more visible female having co-starred opposite Ray Romano in Everybody Loves Raymond and currently starring in The Middle. Heaton is very adept at situational comedy and almost steals the show here. Drew's performance, however, takes over with simplistic brilliance. Very good humor for Mothers' Day.

Also new this week: "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return", animated, starring Lea Michele, Patrick Stewart, Dan Ackroyd, Martin Short, Oliver Platt, Kelsey Grammer and James Belushi. Great cast--lame plot.
