Family Comedy Mom's Night Out Hits Theaters May 9, Mother's Day Weekend

Mom's Night OutThe endearing true-to-life family comedy Moms' Night Out hits theaters next week and will deliver a level of entertainment and laughter not typically seen in Christian films.

"I love this movie! I wish I could treat every mom to a bucket of popcorn just to watch her laugh," expressed popular teacher and author Beth Moore.

"While it might sound like a movie for women, Moms' Night Out is a hilarious comedy for the whole family – including you,” added Tony Dungy, Super Bowl-winning coach and National Spokesman for All Pro Dad. “Guys, give the gift of laughter this Mother's Day with Moms' Night Out."

Featuring Sean Astin (Goonies, Rudy, Lord of the Rings), Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy), and Patricia Heaton (Everybody Loves Raymond), among others, Moms' Night Out celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting through the outrageous escapades of Allyson (played by Drew), whose plans for a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation with friends and fellow moms go awry.

“Every mom and dad in America – whether they have toddlers, tweens or teens – is going to love this movie,” commented Heaton, who not only stars in the movie but executive produced it with her husband, David Hunt, who also appears in the film. “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.”

Moms’ Night Out was screened at the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville earlier this year and was also screened weeks earlier by NRB staff members. The movie was well received at both screenings, with many expressing how much they loved the movie and how much they were looking forward to promoting the film and watching it again in theaters.

The movie will especially be a more-than-pleasant surprise for moviegoers who tend to be critical of or unimpressed by Christian films. While the Christian messages are clear, the entertainment value of the movie is exceptional. It accomplishes what few Christian films have been able to do – be highly entertaining (not to mention remarkably hilarious) and also meaningful and encouraging.

It’s a must-see for parents and grandparents, and also one that many more age groups can enjoy.

So if you’re still thinking about what to do on Mother’s Day, consider treating your mother to a showing of Moms’ Night Out. This movie will fill hearts with laughter and encouragement.

*While May 9 if the official opening date for Moms' Night Out, the movie will open in advance on May 8 in many theaters.
