In an interview with The A.V. Club, Teri Garr revealed that when the producers pitched the movie to her, they hid the plot reversal. "They just told me it was about a guy who does the work that a woman does, because it's so easy, and I went, 'Oh, yeah. Ha ha.' It's so easy. All the women I know who stay home and take care of their kids, they go, 'Oh yeah, this is easy.' Hmm." See more »

Michael Keaton gets laid off from his cushy job and figures he will be called back very soon, but that does not happen. Thus wife Teri Garr finds an advertising job really fast and it is up to Keaton to care for their three young children in this admittedly funny, but somewhat under-achieving comedic venture. Martin Mull steals every scene as Garr's new boss and Ann Jillian sizzles as the couple's next door neighbor who has her eye on Keaton. Not bad, but not real good either. Middle-of-the-line entertainment. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
