It’s dumb as Hell and probably only got created to facilitate Nic Cage meeting his freakout quota and also what was that ending? But shit, I’ve had way worse times with a movie. Probably less cathartic to someone who actually likes children or has a healthy relationship with their parents, but for me and mine? _Mom and Dad_ weren’t half bad.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
The movie presents a fun and interesting idea of parents trying to kill their kids and reminded me of the excellent Masters of Horror episode ‘The Screwfly Solution’.
Well, it was a fun idea until the movie just ended with absolutely no resolution at all. No proper ending, no answers, nothing at all. Just the credits half way through the story. I felt like I’d just wasted the last 80 or so minutes of my life. I can’t recommend half a movie and I’ll give it half a score. 2.5 out of 5. Don’t waste your time.
Cage going ape crazy once more. And I loved it.
“I mean, I used to be Brent… and you used to be Kendall… and now we’re just… Mom and Dad.”
I’m sure some parents will experience it in their life. The moment you get a bit tired of your offspring. That you would love to put them on a rocket and shoot them to the moon, so that you get a little bit of time and space. Even though your love for your children is unconditional and sincere. This moment will only last a few seconds with normal parents before they look back at their kids lovingly and realize they can’t live without them. Not here in “Mom and Dad”. Here you’ll see parents in a small American town, who suddenly turn into murderous psychopaths with only one goal. And that’s killing their lovely children.
The cause of this parental hysteria is not entirely clear. Is it, like in “Cell”, an electronic pulse that triggers their behavior? Or is it a mutated virus? Don’t expect an explanation. In any case, it causes mothers to leave a little baby in the car which is parked on a railroad crossing. Or a big fat family man swinging around with a bloody baseball bat. And a bunch of fleeing students who are being tackled en masse by crazy parents. The movie isn’t exactly horrifying or scary. Only the scene with the newborn baby gave me an uncomfortable feeling.
It feels like a typical zombie movie with parents walking around with a glassy look. The only difference is that they only have an eye for their own children and don’t have the urge to chase every panicking teenager. “Mom and dad” is complete madness and highly entertaining. Nicolas Cage shines as the father who thinks he’s a complete failure. His dreams didn’t come true and his career isn’t that what he had imagined. The same applies to his wife played by Selma Blair. A bitter-toned, exhausted mother who can’t accept that her daughter doesn’t show any affection anymore for her. She has been exchanged for weed smoking girlfriends and the omnipresent social media. Their frustrations become obvious during the pool table scene, where they pour their guts out.
It’s been a long time ago since I’ve enjoyed total craziness which Cage can play as one of the best. In “Arsenal” he showed a crazy “Tony Clifton” type whose tirades were brilliantly played ans at the same time felt exaggerated. However, the disturbing hysteria and raging frenzy he shows here, exceeds this effortlessly. In a convincing way he shows that frightening look and pure anger. It’s as if complete madness has taken over. I admit, It’s also overly exaggerated. But that makes it humorous sometimes. The grandparents’ moment was an ingenious idea and caused the story to take a different direction. Do you like a horror comedy with a slightly macabre atmosphere? Well, that means this movie is right up your alley.
Fun to see Nic Cage stumbling. Cage Rage is back with his over-the-top, grimacing, eye-bulging performance.
Nic Cage is always enjoyable to watch especially with his angry n constipated face aka Cage Rage. If u enjoyed the scene wher he is crying in pain in a jute sack aft getting a beating in Wicker Man then u will love the scene where he stumbles…
The plot is similar to The Signal (2007). Unknown virus/transmission turns parents into murdering their own kids. Myself cant stand harm shown towards kiddies n any kinda rape. So dont worry, the film takes it a bit easy on kiddie deaths but it has some genuine tension, over the top performance, solid dark humour n a cameo by Lance Henriksen n an attractive Selma Blair. The scenes in the hospital delivery room especially wher bunch of parents r waiting to kill their newborns is truly frightening.
