The Greatest Movie Ever.
I know it seems weird to say this about a John Hughes film, but I honestly think this is one of the great films of all time. There are so few movies that are so.. flawless. The script is hilarious. The editing is seamless. Every line is quote-worthy. The acting is spot-on. Michael Keaton is at the top of his game, Terry Garr is a comic genius, and the casting is perfect.
The story is both goofy, and rather deep. It conatins at least a dozen of my top 100 all-time favorite movie ‘moments’. Its the kind of film you see late at night on TV, and you start watching a few minutes, then suddenly before you know it, you’ve watched the whole thing AGAIN. Obviously, I highly recommend this film, and encourage more filmmakers to study it, because they just don’t make ’em like this anymore.
An Entertaining Family Comedy that made Michael Keaton a star…
Michael Keaton officially became a star with MR. MOM, a warm and funny family comedy which stars Keaton as Jack Butler, an automotive engineer who gets laid off and can’t seem to get another job anywhere else. In order to make ends meet, Jack’s wife, Caroline (Teri Garr), who gave up a brief career in advertising to be a stay-at-home Mom, decides to go back to work and is instantly hired at an advertising agency, which forces Jack to settle into being the stay-at-home Dad. It’s hilarious watching Jack cluelessly trying to deal with his kids, shopping, laundry, and other domestic duties. Jack even manages to get addicted to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and teaches the other moms in the neighborhood how to play poker. Meanwhile, Caroline gets promoted after 20 minutes on the job and is forced to fend off the advances of her slimy boss, played to perfection by Martin Mull. This film contains one hilarious scene after another as Jack starts to lose his self-esteem, reduced to dealing with dirty diapers and a vacuum cleaner with a life of its own. Garr is in top form and there is a fun turn by Ann Jillian as an amorous neighbor who has the hots for Jack. This film is a joy from start to finish, thanks to a clever screenplay and the impeccable comic timing of Michael Keaton.
