Mr. Mom is one of my favorite movies, even though it's a bit dated now. That's what makes it such a classic! Hilarity ensues when the wife, formerly a housewife gets a job after the husband loses his, leaving him as a house husband. The joys of parenthood are evident here as well as the pressures of work and marriage. Very funny movie with a great cast! Highly recommended!

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. If you need a laugh, you will find many here. It was written by John Hughes (National Lampoon's Vacation, Home Alone, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, all of those beloved '80s teen movies and more), and I think it is one of his best. The cast is perfect, too. It's a good family movie, with an explanation that a dad parenting full-time was more of a rarity in 1983; I've liked it since I was a kid. Mr. Mom is rated PG.
