Notes: 
Storyline Heading
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?
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Below Average Somewhere between a Lifetime movie and a Nickelodeon sitcom exists Moms' Nights Out, a raunch-free romp made to be suffered through by the whole family. What this PG comedy lacks in cursing, it also comes up short on plot, character development, originality, and overall pleasure.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 50 moviegoers:
TEENS: None
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: All three of the females loved "Mom's Night Out."
ADULTS: The professional movie critics didn't enjoy "Mom's Night Out" but moviegoers certainly did. Over three-quarters of the females loved "Mom's Night Out." Most of the remaining quarter felt it was an "above average" movie, which indicates they enjoyed it very much. Only a few rated it as low as "good/average." The male reviews aren't quite as high as those of the females, but considering the type of movie this is, these reviews are very high. Eighty-percent of the males either enjoyed it very much or loved it. Only a couple rated it "average" to "below average."
