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 bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong?
Comedy - This is a wild, silly comedy aimed at women, particularly mothers,
but unlike a lot of recent comedies, this is silly while being
squeaky clean and all-ages appropriate. There is an element of faith
in the film but it is fairly subtle unlike most Christian-targeted
films. Fans of Sarah Drew from her TV work will enjoy this lead
showcase for her, and other recognizable cast members such as Sean
Astin and Patricia Heaton have prominent supporting roles.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average Depressingly regressive and borderline dangerous, "Moms' Night Out" peddles archaic notions of gender roles in the name of wacky laughs. But it also wants to be "About Something." It wants to inspire as well as entertain. It's "The Hangover" aimed at Christian audiences, and if that sounds like an impossible prospect, well, that's because it is.
USA TodayFull Review Poor Mothers deserve a much better break than the hectic, shrill and dismally unpleasant Moms' Night Out." Ads make it look like a wacky outing featuring fun-loving moms and clueless dads. But there's no fun to be had — and not a drop of originality — in this chaotic and contrived mess.
