"Take it easy on daddy. Remember, he's a rookie."
While Caroline Butler (Teri Garr, Tootsie) re-enters the workforce and becomes the rising star of her advertising agency, her newly unemployed husband Jack (Michael Keaton, Night Shift) finds himself a new job … as a stay-at-home dad! But if Jack thinks his old career in the automotive industry was tough, he has no idea what's waiting for him at home: the ins and outs of dropping the kids off at school, soap operas, woobies, babies with chili, a clean-up on aisle seven and a vacuum cleaner named "Jaws." Not to mention the seedy neighborhood drama!
Inspired, in part, by writer John Hughes' (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles) own life lessons as a clueless stay-at-home father, Mr. Mom is sure to have every parent slapping their foreheads with sympathy, as they slap their knees with laughter!
“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for fans of the stars and Hughes.” – Dr. Stephen Larson, Blu-ray.com
“The film gets a shiny new transfer and a great Making-Of Documentary. This Shout Select release is going to be a no-brainer for any fan of this and 80’s comedies in general. Recommended!” – Adam Kautzer, Film Dispenser
“Mr. Mom is a classic comedy of the 1980s. It’s certainly hilarious in its portrait of what was happening to many men during the recession when they found their work had sold them out. I am happy to report that Keaton and company FINALLY get the respect they deserve with this solid release from Shout Select, which cements the film’s comedy classic status with a NEW retrospective featuring interviews from the cast and crew.” – Loron Hays, Reel Reviews
“This is a classic film that’s worth checking out on this fantastic-looking Blu-ray…” – No(R)eruns.net
“Shout! Factory’s Collector’s Edition – spine number 28 in their growing Shout Select line of cult movies – offers a solid Blu-ray presentation. Extra features include a nice looking-back documentary with producer Lauren Shuler Donner and members of the cast, as well as the movie’s original theatrical trailer.” – Austin Trunick, Under The Radar
