Don't Try This At Home!
21 February 2004 | by (Toronto, ON Canada) – See all my reviews

Comes a time when every mother on the planet feels the way this mum does. Maybe it will happen when your kids become teenagers, or maybe your husband will finally push your last button as you try to accomplish all the tasks a woman, wife and mother needs to get through on any given day. The lack of respect for the everyday grind will get to you, and you'll briefly consider going on strike. When that day comes, do not - repeat - DO NOT take this movie as Gospel! It's Disney, folks. The First Lady will not come to your house to bail you out.

Instead, it's likely your children will turn into worse monsters than previous, and your husband will go through the seven stages of denial. You will be ridiculed, detested, and guilted out until you feel worse than you did before your strike, and you'll work twice as hard as you did before in an effort to get back into your family's good books. Trust me. I tried it.

The bottom line is that womens work is not appreciated, has never been appreciated, and will probably never be adequately appreciated. Some strides have been made, but in a society that values payment for service over quality of life, housework and mothering will forever hold the lowest place of regard.

That being said - it's Disney, so there's a moral, and an eventual improvement in the movie family's attitude towards the parents. And there are some funny moments that any houseperson can relate to. The point is driven home that help and respect are simple requests and qualities that every family needs to embrace.

This is a cute little movie that parents should encourage their children to see, since there is a slim chance that a child may take away at least some appreciation for the actual labor involved in managing a home and family. Between the snickers. But I wouldn't encourage any woman to play out the scenario in real life, since at best, they'll wind up more guilty and discouraged than before, and at worst, could put themselves in real danger of emotional or physical abuse.
