In the story, Allyson (Sarah Drew) and her friends long for a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and talk–a long-overdue “moms’ night out.” But to indulge in high heels, adult conversation, and not having to cut anyone else’s meat, their husbands will need to watch the kids for a few hours. What could go wrong?
"Every mom and dad in America–whether they have toddlers, tweens or teens–is going to love this movie,” Heaton said. “It's a hilarious family-friendly celebration of the trials and triumphs of parenting–a joyous affirmation of the world's hardest but most important job."
Drew loves the layered storylines–a family comedy several times over. “And then it’s a full-on love story about two people who already know each other,” she said. “Every mom knows that juggling act. And every audience that sees it says, “That’s my life!”
Co-writer/director Jon Erwin says the best humor begins at home. “My brother, Andy, and I love being dads, and everything in this movie happened to us . . . just last week!”
