A season 3 episode of FOX's hit drama, "New Girl" spent much of the episode exhaulting the career of Michael Keaton; in fact the episode is even titled "Keaton." This episode might make one want to take a look back at some of the highlights of Michael Keaton's career. One film of note is "Mr. Mom" (1983). This film is directed by Stan Dragoti and written by John Hughes about a stay-at-home dad.
There is no question about the dated nature of "Mr. Mom." The entire movie is centered around the novelty of a man staying home with his children while his wife goes off to work. This ridiculousness aside, "Mr. Mom" holds up pretty well thirty years later and this is mostly thanks to Michael Keaton's (as Jack) utter adorableness on screen. Teri Garr as Jack's wife Caroline and Martin Mull as her boss assist in making the movie fun to watch.
"Mr. Mom" plays out how one would expect. At first Jack is completely inept in taking care of his children and the house. Caroline (who works at an ad agency because everyone works at an ad agency in movies from the 80s) on the other hand succeeds quickly at work but has to avoid sexual advances from her boss. Eventually the two learn how to balance their work and home lives to reach a satisfying, if not a tiny bit cloying, ending.
