Critic Reviews for Mama's Boy

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

It's not that the movie is utterly bereft of arresting moments. It's just that each of these prominently features one of the aforementioned supporting cast and not the so-called star.

Top Critic

Matters quickly regress into an antic romantic comedy, potentially buoyed by a strong cast but soon thwarted by a screenplay as leaden as it is predictable.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Haphazardly conceived and clumsily executed, this aggressively quirky yet gratingly unfunny comedy appears set on the fast track to vidstore bins.

When the writer's this far off, the actors and the audience pay the price.

...there's certainly no understating the ineffectiveness of Heder's relentlessly (and irritatingly) over-the-top performance...

Ana Faris is the best thing in this predictable, often silly Jon Heder movie about a spoilt son trying to sabotage his mother's new relationship

Audience Reviews for Mama's Boy

Kind of lame. A few funny bits, and Anna Faris ,as always , is worth watching, but Stepbrothers did this better.
Rewatched this 2014. Actually, I quite liked it, more than the first time.
Yes, it's silly, but I laughed quite a few times and I really do like the cast. Also had a surprisingly good soundtrack and just love Anna's blonde and black hair.
The plot is a bit recycled, but for something silly to watch at home, this is quite decent.

Mama's Boy is dumb, completely ridiculous and tries much too hard to be funny. Nothing can be saved, except the actors, for being in this garbage. This should not have been made!

It was okay. Nothing special about it.
