Most people don’t know this but Michael Keaton is a very good Comedic actor. He is very, very funny and kind of has a manic everyday comedy character that he plays. One of the funniest movies that he has done is Mr. Mom. Circa 1983.
|What happened here?|
Mr. Mom, directed by Aaron Spelling!, is the story of man who is fired from his job at an auto plant and then becomes a stay at home dad when his wife gets a job. Think Daddy Day Care but this time he doesn’t start a business. Well, of course, being the professional man that he is he has no clue how to handle his three children or the chores of the house. Actually it kind of makes him come across as a moron who doesn’t even know how to buy groceries.
Insanity ensues along with the funny moments of a fish out of water life. The script is funny and well written and you will be surprised to find that John Hughes himself wrote Mr. Mom.
Final Verdict: I got it free so worth owning.
