Eccentric Jeffrey Mannus is 29 years old and still lives at home with his mom, Jan. He sees no reason to alter this arrangement, but his perfect world is upended when Jan meets Mert, a motivational speaker. Mert successfully woos Jan and moves in on Jeffrey's territory, something Jeffrey will not tolerate. Jeffrey enlists the aid of an unlikely ally, an aspiring singer-songwriter, Nora, with an anti-establishment penchant and a soft spot for him. As the war between Mert and Jeffrey escalates, something unprecedented happens -- slowly, to both his own surprise and horror, Jeffrey discovers his inner adult. Written by

"Mama's Boy" is hilarious from the get go! We rented it, practically died laughing, then had to buy it and have watched it many times - it's one of the best comedies of the past 10 years. Everyone is great in this film - Jon Heder, Diane Keaton, Jeff Daniels, Anna Faris, Eli Wallach. It's so great to see Jeff Daniels in a comedy (besides the classic "Dumb and Dumber" & "D&D2"). The friction and competitiveness between Jon and Jeff is a riot! Their scenes are the absolute best! Jon Heder's dialogue (and word usage) is beyond hilarious! Wish Hollywood made more great movies like this! This film deserves way more than 10 stars!
