    Silly but charming. Mark Boon Junior was quite good and rather genuine. There were some funny moments as well.

    This film is terrible. Don't watch it. A mother applies for a gay scholarship for her son who isn't gay. It is awful.

    BEWARE! THESE USER REVIEWS ARE FAKE! Producers will pay for good user reviews to boost the scores of their terrible films. If you look at the reviews they are almost all posted on the exact same day, with little to no information on the film just a very general statement. If you look at the profile of each of the reviewers you will see that they have all reviewed the exact same movies, the exact same days with the exact same rating .... coincidence? Don't think so!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS MOVIE.This movie may actually the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life.Helicopter Mom is idiotic, annoying, patently unfunny, and blatantly homophobic. It is in many ways a film from a different and far worse era. Head-to-toe it plays like a lackluster piece of late-90s teen sit-com drek. The film isn't even remotely relevant and it overflows with dated references. Then there is the issue of the film's central plot: that a mother would be so aggressively separated from reality to determine that her son is gay before he has even reached a conclusion. It is ridiculous and disgustingly offensive. At every turn it simplifies a whole crop of people, defining them by nothing more than who they love, and aggressively stereotyping them along the way. As if this weren't enough to stop watching, it then cripples its characters with dialogue that is unrealistic and clumsy. There are so many elements of Helicopter Mom that make it a failure. It is a lazily shot made- for-TV movie that certainly won't find an audience with any demographic. The script is written with the skill of a second-grader with no sense of character knowledge, spinning about with a dizzying amount of unmotivated character shifts. There is no consistency to anything and large sections of the film are absolutely incoherent. The film is so mired in a quagmire of sub-mediocre drivel that it can be considered nothing but forgettable. The best thing that can be said about Helicopter Mom is there's an ending, unfortunately it comes ninety minutes too late.

    Modern coming of age story that speaks to today's generation. Very enlightened.

    A movie that keeps you guessing and wincing about what Nia Vardalos is going to do next. She balances a very difficult character.

    Great teen-driven comedy. Relatively unknown young casts powers this coming-of-age movie.
