MR. MOM (USA 1983)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Mr. Mom—simple storyline—serves as a worthy afternoon watch but seems an odd pick for Michael Keaton (Batman/Batman Returns). However, the choices of Jeffery Tambor and Christopher Lloyd stand solidly. The movie serves family needs well.

Storyline

Dad becomes house-mom after losing engineering position.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Stan Dragoti for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Aaron Spelling for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Jack (Michael Keaton), Caroline Butler (Teri Garr), Alex Butler (Frederick Koehler), Kenny Butler (Taliesin Jaffe), Megan Butler (Brittany White), Ron Richardson (Martin Mull), Joan Hampton (Ann Jillian), and Jinx Lathman (Jeffrey Tambor).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It serves as a good study for one of Michael Keaton’s early works and shows the later skill he built in his career. The movie runs similarly to Daddy Day Care.
