RATING: hearts

PG-Mild thematic elements and some action

Sarah Drew stars as Allyson, a stressed out mother of three who decides to take a breather and go out for a night on the town with her friends from church, Izzy and Sondra. The night turns into chaos as things start going wrong. They decide to help Allyson’s sister-in-law, Bridget, solve a problem of her own by enlisting the help of a tattoo artist called “Bones”, a cab driver, their husbands, Bridget’s ex-boyfriend/baby daddy, and Ally’s husband’s childhood friend. Along the way, they encounter other problems. However, in the end, they band together as an unlikely and crazy team to solve all of the night’s problems, while making the whole thing incredibly humorous. And their journey helps these three moms realize that they are enough. Enough for their families, enough for God, and enough for themselves.

I gave this movie 5 hearts because I absolutely loved it! It is a heart-warming family comedy with Christian roots. All the humor is clean and there is no cussing or innuendos. The storyline is very intriguing and there is never a dull moment! The actors all did very good and I enjoyed watching how characters with such a wide-range of personalities blended together. One thing I really admire is that this movie has characters with morals, which can be rare these days. Like every thing else in life, it wasn’t perfect. But whatever little things were wrong with it, I can’t think of anything major, didn’t bring down its rating in my mind. Movie critics, however, haven’t given this movie the best reviews. I believe it’s because they don’t like how clean it is compared to what they’re used to and the fact that it’s faith-based. Personally, that only makes me like it more!

I highly recommend this to people of all ages, especially to you moms out there who work so hard day in and day out! You will really relate to it, I’m sure!
