Mr. Mom
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Michael Keaton and Teri Garr star in the hilarious comedy Mr. Mom. Mr. Mom hit theaters in 1983, with a run time of 92 minutes. Jack (Keaton) and Caroline (Garr) were your average family. They have a nice house and live a happy life. Unfortunately, Jack loses his job. Jack agreed that he’d be a stay at home dad while Caroline works. Jack soon realizes that being a stay at home dad isn’t as easy at he thought it’d be, mainly because he has never done this before. It’s new to him. Instead of working in an office, he now has to clean, cook, and care for his children all day by himself.

This is a funny comedy about a man named Jack Butler, played by Michael Keaton, who has a good job as an engineer at an automobile manufacturing plant. One day he loses his job and him and his wife Carolyn, played by Teri Garr, make a bet who can find a job faster and Carolyn wins. Now Jack has to stay at home with the kids and he doesn't have any idea how to run the house or how to take care of the kids. He starts becoming friends with all the neighborhood house wifes and they start playing poker, working out together, and venting their lives troubles to each other. Meanwhile, Carolyn is having a hard time getting back into the workforce at an advertising agency. Then Carolyn has a guy at work flirting with her, and Jack has a neighborhood house wife after him. Jack thinks that Carolyn is having an affair and things start to fall apart. If you want to laugh a lot you should really see this movie!
