A morgue attendant is talked into running a brothel at his workplace after a deceased pimp is sent there. However, the pimp's killers don't look too kindly on this new 'business', nor does the morgue's owner.
Four mental patients on a field trip in New York City must save their caring chaperon, who ends up being taken to a hospital in a coma after accidentally witnessing a murder, before the killers can find him and finish the job.
Jack and Caroline are a couple making a decent living when Jack suddenly loses his job. They agree that he should stay at home and look after the house while Caroline works. It's just that he's never done it before, and really doesn't have a clue. Written by

Only a year after this movie was released, a spin-off television movie version was made. Mr. Mom (1984) had a different cast and crew, except for Writer John Hughes and Director Stan Dragoti, who were credited for characters and story, respectively. See more »
During the poker game Jack and the neighborhood ladies are playing when Caroline arrives home from work, the ladies all quickly get up to leave upon Caroline's arrival. In one brief shot, there are a group of "other" kids in the living room in addition to the three Butler kids. These kids presumably belong to the poker ladies. However, not a single one of the mothers walks out with their kid. Granted, they could have come back to get the kids. But it would have made a lot more sense to do this the first time. See more »

I mean, who really gets tired of seeing Michael Keaton playing a housewife? There's just no equivalent to this when it comes to great comedy. I've seen it countless times, and can't believe how little recognition this film actually gets. The main plot of the movie is that Keaton gets fired (or laid off, I can't honestly remember, it's been so long since I've seen it...) from his job, and ironically enough his wife wants to go to work for an advertising company. Reluctantly he agrees, and what follows is just pure chaos. He loves his wife, but at times you get the feeling not enough to keep doing the daily, mundane rituals, he feels woman should be stuck with doing.
It's a great comedy and an awesome rent for anyone over the age of 10. A film that you could actually watch with your kids, and still not have them get certain underlying jokes.
A 9 out of 10 in my estimation. 10 being the highest that is, and the reason I give it a 9 and not quite a 10, well....I guess you'll just have to watch it to make your own decision about that.
And that's my review.
