Mama's Boy Reviews

December 14, 2007
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.

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.

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

The picture is merely series of loose gags stumbling into each other while Heder makes faces, Hamilton spends more time on his soundtrack selections than his storytelling, as the rest of the cast waits patiently for their paychecks to clear.

I expected to laugh a lot harder and more frequently. Mama's Boy isn't what I'd call a terrible movie. Instead, it's a movie that assembles a lot of interesting elements that never gel.

Diane Keaton and Jon Heder have made some good movies over the years. This is not one of them.

...unless you are related to Keaton or Heder, I wouldn't advise you go out of your way to see it.

Mama's Boy is the ultimate, definitive, supremo bad movie, the universal black hole of suckage bad movie, the celluloid anti-Christ bad movie of bad movies -- not to put too fine a point on it or anything.
