Drew plays Allyson who plans a night out with fellow mother Patricia Heaton, as long as they husbands look after their kids.
Of course, all hell breaks loose.
Sean Astin (And They’re Off) and country music singer Trace Adkins also star in the PG film, which was directed by Andrew Erwin (God Provides) and Jon Erwin (October Baby) from a screenplay by Jon Erwin and Andrea Gyertson Nasfell (Escape).
Moms’ Night Out was a crowd pleaser for those who saw it in theater, except critics. According to Rotten Tomatoes, critics gave the movie a dismal 18% approval, but moviegoers approved to the tune of 87%.
The movie grossed only $10 million at the box office. »
"Veep" leading lady Julia Louis-Dreyfus looks likely to win Comedy Actress for third year running at the Emmys. However, she faces strong challenges from a perennial also-ran and a newcomer to the category. -Break- Will Matthew McConaughey continue McConaissance at Emmys?

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man had no trouble taking on Electro and The Green Goblin. At the North American box office, he proved to be no match when it came to Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Much to the surprise of everyone, Universal's R-rated comedy Neighbors moved into the number one spot at the North American box office this weekend, easily displacing The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It also made mincemeat out of fellow newcomers Legends of Oz: Dorothy Returns and Moms' Night Out, which both bombed.
Proof that you don't need to spend hundreds of millions to make a hit movie, the $18 million Neighbors arrived in 3,279 theaters following an extensive period of marketing and screenings to earn a great $51 million. The huge opening represents the fourth best opening ever for an R-rated comedy behind The Hangover Part II, Sex and the City and Ted. The film was directed by »
"Neighbors" partied hard at the box office on Friday, earning a huge $19.6 million and unseating "Amazing Spider-Man 2" from the top spot. The raunchy comedy, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, is on its way to a weekend debut just under $50 million. It's a great start for a film that reportedly cost just $18 million to produce. "Spider-Man," which features returning stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, swung to No. 2 with $10.1 million on Friday. It will likely earn around $36 million for the weekend, putting it within reach of a $150 million domestic total. The Sony sequel has so far earned a big $340 million overseas. It also stars Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti and Dane DeHaan. The Cameron Diaz comedy "The Other Woman" scored another $2.8 million for third place on Friday, bringing its domestic total to a strong $55.2 million. The Christian-themed drama "Heaven is For Real" earned $1.6 million. Its domestic total stands at an impressive $69.8 million. »

Universal’s opening of “Neighbors” grossed $19.6 million – almost twice as much as Sony’s second weekend of “Spider-Man 2,” which earned $10.1 million. The raunchy comedy is now on track for a $49 million-plus weekend, far ahead of “Spider-Man 2’s” lower-than-expected estimated $37 million.
The pic is also No. 1 in 16 of the 29 international territories where it opened this weekend, including the U.K., Ireland and Australia. “Neighbors” earned $14.7 million from the three aforementioned markets and will open in 26 more territories in the next few months.
The $18 million hard R-rated pic from director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) stars Seth Rogen as a new father and Zac Efron as a fraternity president involved in a tit-for-tat war of pranks.
“Neighbors” has nearly matched in a single day the opening of Rogen’s last movie, »

Chicago – Liberty is a concept expressed only in irony with “Moms’ Night Out,” a female-driven minivan comedy that instructs ultimately to listen to thy husband for it is Biblical, even if thy husband is a child himself. Like sad Mitt Romney and his chocolate milk, this PG-romp is a brief walk on the wild side from the rules that await at the end of the night.
Unfortunately, while taking out the substance abuse of a Judd Apatow or Todd Phillips arc, this shiny film exorcises the substance that comes with a freer perspective of the world. “Moms’ Night Out” diverges into a film that cannot offer its viewers freedom from the the evil spirits that make a world so toxic, as the film itself is so narrow-minded.
The intentions of “Moms’ Night Out” start out innocent enough, with a zippy beginning that provides false promise for focused filmmaking. Its »

Aw Heck! ABC has renewed The Middle sitcom for a sixth season.
Like most shows, The Middle is down year-to-year (by nearly 10% in the demo) but this series has remained a consistent performer for the network on Wednesdays at 8pm. That's particularly important since ABC continues to struggle to find new comedy hits. Of this year's crop, only The Goldbergs is a moderate success (it's also been renewed).
What do you think? Are you glad that The Middle is returning for a sixth season or do you think the show should have been cancelled? How long should it run?

The frat boys are moving in to challenge our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man for the No. 1 spot as Universal rolls out Neighbors this weekend. Starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, the highly anticipated comedy has a chance of outearning The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which can expect a steep drop in its second weekend in theaters.
The animated Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return and the wholesome Moms’ Night Out also open wide this weekend, in addition to a slew of interesting limited releases including Chef, The Double, Palo Alto, and God’s Pocket.
Here’s how things might play out:

This story first appeared in the May 16 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Hollywood's religious revival of 2014 is being put to a key test: Can a faith-based film pack in big audiences if it's a comedy? The recent success of religion-themed dramas God's Not Dead, Heaven Is for Real and Son of God has awakened many traditional film executives to the power of the Christian audience. Now, with Moms' Night Out, which stars Patricia Heaton and is being released May 9 on about 1,000 domestic screens, that audience is being asked to support a lighter

Movies about mothers, whether they are single or married, have been coming out in droves lately. It was only a few months ago that we saw Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club and now, just in time for Mother’s Day, we have the comedy Moms’ Night Out.
The film follows Allyson (Sarah Drew), who has just endured another energy draining week of caring for her children while her husband Sean (Sean Astin) is out of town yet again. In desperate need of a break, Allyson invites her two best friends, Izzy (Andrea Logan White) and the pastor’s wife Sondra (Patricia Heaton), to spend an evening with her where they can relax and let their hair down. What begins as a fun night out soon turns into a chaotic evening which involves a boatload of misunderstandings that will have moms and dads chasing after each other as they »

There’s nothing wrong with “Moms’ Night Out” that couldn’t be fixed by a massive rewrite, preferably one that involves a lobotomy for the main character. Capturing the chaos that ensues when three overworked mothers decide to take a breather, this dismally unfunny comedy features barely a single instance of what most adults would recognize as human behavior — a curious failure for a movie aiming to resonate with all the frazzled mothers and fathers in the audience. Basically a shrill feature-length sitcom for the faith-based family-values crowd, if nowhere near as good as that sounds, Sony/TriStar’s Mother’s Day-timed release could get some mileage out of its high-profile Christian backers (namely co-star Patricia Heaton) but won’t exactly follow in the blessed B.O. footsteps of “Heaven Is for Real” and “God’s Not Dead.”

It was a family affair at “Mom’s Night Out” starring Patricia Heaton, Trace Adkins, Sarah Drew and Sean Astin. Cast and crew, along with kids and spouses, were all smiles on the red carpet Tuesday night the Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood as they arrived for the premiere of the family friendly film that “celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.” Much in the vein of “Mr. Mom” and “Daddy Daycare,” the premise of the film leaves the dads in charge while the moms have a night of fun and, of course, chaos ensues. The film, from the directing team of Jon and Andrew Erwin, has been generating good buzz. It opens on May 9 during the prime Mother’s Day weekend. Tri-Star is banking on a strong family turn-out to edge out the stiff competition of Universal’s “Neighbors” starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron and Clarius Entertainment’s animated sequel, »
Directors Andrew and Jon Erwin took the time to gush on wives and mothers everywhere Tuesday night at the “Mom’s Night Out” premiere at the Tcl Chinese Theatre.
“Life’s a mess, but it’s a beautiful mess and you’re loved just for who you are, you’re beautiful just for who you are, and that’s the message of the movie,” said Jon.
Andrew says the movie will be a breath of fresh air.
“For me, I have to believe a story before I can tell it, and when I read it, there was just an unexpected heart and depth,” he said.
The TriStar Pictures film follows Sarah Drew, Patricia Heaton and Andrea Logan White as mothers who have almost reached the point of insanity from the amount of stress they are under. The three embark on a mom’s night out, while their husbands watch their »

As the start of the Summer movie season, the month of May is typically loaded with major franchise fare*both established and aspiring ones. This year is no different, though each of the would-be blockbusters comes with a few question marks.The current May record was set in 2013, when the month racked up $1.14 billion in total box office.

Brad Fulchuk drops hints about the future of Klaine: “when you’re really on top of each other and really seeing each other and really get to smell each other every day, it’s a little different.”
Patricia Heaton didn’t know about ‘this homophobic guy’ Bryan Fischer. Um, your “gay makeup artist” needs to learn that Google is his friend
PGA nobody tweets incredibly stupid joke about Michael Sam.
This Mother’s Day, theaters everywhere will be hoping to tap into the associated demographic with Mom’s Night Out. The trailer may look like something out of the ’80s, and the look you get at Trace Adkins might not be the most favorable, but there are hints in this trailer that it might actually be something many will fall in love with.
I’m going to chalk up the odd appearance to misguided marketing, because there are several hints involved that make me really wonder. Before you even watch the trailer, just the fact that Sean Astin and Patricia Heaton are in it should be worth a little bit of leeway. They aren’t exactly people signing up for any crazy movie that comes their way. You might not love them, but they don’t show up in too many terrible efforts.
Beyond that, there are a couple of »
