Moms' Night Out (2014)



Critic Consensus: Cheap-looking, unfunny, and kind of sexist to boot, Moms' Night Out is a disappointment from start to finish.

Critic Reviews for Moms' Night Out

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (16)

If the concept of a moms' night out is premised on the notion that mothers can never get away for fear their families will collapse in their absence, then this movie cruelly confirms that fear.

What ensues is frenetic and never as funny as it should be because directing brothers Andrew and Jon Erwin are not skilled enough at pacing the action and varying the volume.

Basically, the moral of the story is: Don't go out. Because if you do, all hell will break loose - or rather, all heck.

Some of these plot twists require more than the normal suspension of logic that often happens in similar comedies. Yet the characters are all appealing.

Seldom has wackiness been as tedious as it is in "Moms' Night Out," a Christian-themed film that is desperate to make adherents seem wild and crazy but mostly makes them seem incapable of raising children.

It's rare that a movie fails on absolutely every level, but "Moms' Night Out" is a remarkably vivid example.

Audience Reviews for Moms' Night Out


Here's a breezy, light hearted, faith based comedy that I'm sure all mom's will enjoy. It's about a mom who is overly stressed out from her kids and takes a night out with a couple of her girlfriends. From their hijinks ensue(like all movies!) What separates this from most movies is it really is for the whole family, and never goes too far with the jokes and gags. I think this is rated PG and was screened at several churches throughout the country. It's actually refreshing to have a comedy like this not overboard and remain relatively tame. Was it really for me? I thought it was OK, but the performances weren't that great, and the story was generic and pretty predictable. But, that's fine. There are a few pretty funny parts, but it does start to run out at steam towards the end. My wife thought it was just ok, I would imagine she has the same qualms as I do with it. But, I would say that all moms should check it out, guys you might like some of it.

A slapstick comedy that has actual laugh out loud scenes. It is faith based and does have B-actors but they hold their own for the most part and the message is not too heavy to make non-believers or casual believers squirm too much. It did kind of suggest that men are useless or weak and need women to run the show but I was willing to overlook it. A decent rental that is purely for entertainment. 09-14-2014

I was really looking forward to the film. It had a good premise. But as soon as the film started I began to cringe. The narration was badly written, each one of the character was really generic, the acting was nightmarish, the script uneven. It made you feel good but was way to predictable and preposterous. It may be good for Christian viewers but I personally did not enjoy this film at all.
