Mr. Mom (1983)

I loved this old-fashioned screwball rom-com. Anyone else?

It's not without its goofy charms. What's the message in the end, though? A woman's place is in the home? Men can *sort of * run a household? Best to not think too deep on this.

I do too along with Multiplicity.

Yes, I watched it many, many times as a kid. Haven’t seen it all the way through in age

I recorded it on VHS so I could watch the male strip club scene over and over. Desperate times and all!

I thought it was the typical "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" sort of premise where a guy has to take care of the household for once. Watching him struggle to adjust was the main entertainment.

The kids were great. 'May I...have a moment to myself, please?'

What happened to those kids? They were genuinely gorgeous kids.

It holds up ok. I thought it was hilarious when it first came out and it was on cable like a hundred times. I saw it recently and the jokes and sets up are a little broad and the premise does feel like 500 years ago. It's cute but not great.

What does ROM COM mean?

No, I despise Michael Keaton. He's an awful actor. Tics tics tics!

R10 Romantic comedy. I’m not sure I would put this movie in that category. More family comedy.

The red headed son is Freddie Koehler. He played 'Chip' on "Kate & Allie." He still acts.

Those who love movies might like the #Bales2021FilmChallenge on Twitter. On January 8, National Bubble Bath Day, people tweeted jpegs from movies with bubble-bath scenes, e.g., Mr. Mom.

Pretty Woman and Nightmare on Elm Street had the most tweets by far, FWIW.

i remember watching this movie on cable all the time in the 80's. i liked it when they were playing cards and using coupons as wagers

I was trying to figure out if the stripper scene was homophobic.

by Anonymousreply 2001/10/2021

Keaton’s great then, great now. His reputation as a “funny guy” leads people to underestimate his considerable dramatic chops.

Because of Mr. Mom, I can never hear Vangelis’ “Chariots Of Fire” theme without thinking of Keaton & Martin Mull in that ridiculous obstacle course race. Kills me every time.

That ^^ scene reminded me of Cary Grant in [italic] The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer [/italic].

I would also like to say Ann Jillian.

One of my faves, ever.

I think I saw this one at the cinema when I was a kid. All I remember is the line, "It's a jungle out there!"
