I know this sounds funny coming from me, not a parent, but I love this film!
My Mum saw this film come into our shop and said she wanted to watch it. I looked the trailer up on YouTube and thought it looked alright, nothing too exciting.
However the first time my Mum saw it, she said she had to pause the film because she had tears of laughter streaming down her face!
When I first watched it I found the beginning a bit weird. But that kinda faded out after a while and it was a really good film. There are a few laughs dotted throughout it, but the film also builds up to a particular funny bit, when you will probably lose it! The actors are all brilliant. Sean Astin's in it, David A R White's wife, Andrea Logan White, and Sandra Bullock.
It is American. And a bit cheesy on occasions; but honestly, in the grand scheme of things – who cares??! It's still a good film.
It is 'rated' a 12, but it's not like some 12 films I've seen, which I would not watch again.
I've seen Moms' night out at least four times, it still makes me laugh.
I had a couple of friends come to my house yesterday and we watched it together! :)

Did You Know Today Is 'International Day for the Eradication of Poverty'?
On October 17th, 1987 over a 100,000 people descended on the Human Rights and Liberties Plaza in Paris to honour the victims of extreme poverty, hunger and violence.
A deliberate choice because the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed at that same spot 40 years previously.
Since then the UN has declared that 17th October is International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. A day when everyone can come together and help eradicate poverty.
Traidcraft's mission has always been to fight poverty through trade and every product bought through Traidcraft goes towards helping lift one more person out of poverty.
- So with that in mind, why not stop by for a visit??!....
I'M SURE EVERYONE IS WELL AWARE OF THE FACT THAT OCTOBER 31st IS FAST APPROACHING...
