Attention moms everywhere! Start gathering your friends for this Mother’s Day weekend to see Moms’ Night Out, out in theaters tomorrow May 9! My friend (also a mom) and I had the wonderful opportunity to see the Moms’ Night Out movie in advance. We hadn’t really heard much about it before seeing it, so initially it seemed like it was going to be just another cute chick-flick, but it turned out that Moms’ Night Out brings way more to the table. We laughed A LOT and even cried a little. We could relate to so many moments in the movie - it was as if someone had been documenting our own lives. Read on to read our full Moms’ Night Out movie review and see why it’s a great excuse for heading out for a little me-time and having your own moms’ night out!
Honestly, it doesn’t matter what type of mom you are or even the age of your children. Everyone involved in putting the Moms’ Night Out movie together really did a great job of bringing our lives to life on screen. They managed to capture not just the lives of moms, but also the lives of parents in general. As most moms know, it is incredibly rewarding to hold that title, but it is literally a 24/7 job. There’s no paid time off, sick days, or vacation days. Being a parent in general is a forever job! I don’t get a lot of time to myself with a toddler always attached to my leg, but I’ve been very fortunate that my husband seems to understand. I may get a few priceless minutes to myself each day - until my son barges through the door looking for me. (On that note, guess who was still up when I got home after my own moms’ night out to preview the film?)
Not only does the Moms’ Night Out movie have a great cast of characters, it also carries a great dynamic between them. You never know if inspiration will come from an unlikely source! The movie was tastefully done without the use of any profanity; which is really rare. It definitely proves that you don’t need a bucket of bad words to make a great family film. Moms’ Night Out is comical, inspiring, heart-felt, encouraging, and just overall a well-rounded movie. So if you find yourself wanting to run and hide in the closet from your children, or #stressparalyzed (movie reference!) a little more than usual, then it may be time to plan an evening of adult interaction/conversation. Now, even though a moms’ night out or date night is never synonymous with “don’t talk about your children,” don’t hesitate to dust off your favorite heels and get dolled up for this event. Remember, sharing is caring, so share the details of this film with not only the ones that will babysit, but also your friends (that includes us). Make a date for a well-deserved, special moms’ night out and share your own Moms’ Night Out movie review with us!
